I'm staring at a nest 12 meters up a tree. The scary part is that I am at eye-level with it … not very comforting unless you're used to being at a height equivalent to that of a four-storey building. Sweat is running into my eyes as I peer through the viewfinder. It's hot outside, but that's nothing compared to the heat trapped within my small hide. Not even the honey bee that has just crawled down my sock into my right boot can distract me.
