Peaceful family living in our house

One sunny morning when I was walking in the verandah something strange flew over me. When I turned around to see what it was, I saw a humming bird holding some sticks in its beak. Every Sunday I watched these little birds bringing cotton, sticks, leaves and other stuff. After two weeks I recognized it was a nest. At last they finished making it. The nest was very beautiful. It had green colour leaves attached to the door and hay attached around it. As time passed, I heard little noises coming from the nest. A few minutes later, a humming bird flew inside the nest with two flowers in its beak. I went near the nest and saw that they were living peacefully. This is called natural beauty.
