Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

I  wish this was a better photo, but the subject fit the theme so well, I couldn’t resist using it.  While taking a picture of the sun lighting up the pretty little seeds hanging on this tree, I looked up and saw this  birds nest, long since abandoned for a warmer climate.
