Conservationist Bianca Caroline Soares has seen many hummingbird nests, but none like this one she recently photographed near her home in Paraguay.

This one had a roof.

"The Paraguayan Chaco and the Nature Reserve of the Mbaracayú Forest was on fire, and I, like many of you, with a feeling of indescribable helplessness, and with a lot of sadness in my eyes and heart went for a walk, to seek comfort in my environment, in nature, paraphrasing Moses Bertoni; 'It is my life and my religion.'

And it was on a very special morning, in the midst of so many tragedies and bad news I received this gift, that not only I could admire and comfort my soul, if not also convey something positive through this image. And as someone always says that I highly esteem: 'Nature is wise'."

In the weeks that followed that first sighting, Bianca continued to visit the clever bird's nest.

She had two babies and witnessed another magical moment.

"Today I was awarded by nature by being allowed to attend this magical moment of having the most famous hummingbird family in their nest. Able be the last photograph I could take of them, as minutes later the chicks started their first flight. How brave! I feel so blessed, and really, not everything I can explain in words what my day to day is in this paradise, so I summarize it up with a photograph that I'm sure I will remember until my last day."
