    Birds Keep Building Nest In Front Of Traffic Cam

    >A group of Ospreys, large fish-eating birds of prey, have opted to build their nest in front of a traffic camera on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and no matter how many times officials take the nest down, the Ospreys just build a new one. All in all, the nest has been removed three times and then rebuilt again by the Ospreys. Yup, these birds have definitely ruffled the MDTA’s feathers. …

Prints were a key look on the Spring/Summer 13 runways, but with so many options it can be hard to pick the one to go for. While florals and stripes are safe bets this season, if you want to ramp up your style credentials, you need to be in camouflage.

We know this look isn't for everyone, especially as it'll make many think of army fatigues. But if it isn't taken too literally, it's a strong way to give your wardrobe an update.

At DKNY, green and beige prints were out in favour of blacks and greys. The shapes were kept the same so the look was undoubtedly camouflage, just not as obvious as has gone before.

The print was used to funk up pretty summer dresses and on loose jackets, which would look perfect over denim shorts. There was also an edgy outfit consisting of skin-tight camouflage-print trousers in black, beige and khaki with wedge sneakers and a waist-length jacket.

At Edun, the colour scheme was kept similar to DKNY's. However, on this catwalk there was a nod to the greens and browns more usually linked to the pattern. This came courtesy of the rest of the outfit, so a camouflage pair of ankle-skimming pants was teamed with a khaki vest, and a short patterned skirt with a dark green cropped knit.

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac showed the print in eye-popping citrus yellow with some white splashes. He didn't shy away from clashing prints too, pairing the camouflage look with stripy jumpers or bold jackets in yellow and monochrome.

As with many trends, this is all about how far you are willing to go. You could just dip your toes in the water by opting for a scarf or other accessory in the pattern, but that's not really going to do this look justice.

It's all about going for gold with this, so we'd suggest making like DKNY and finding some trousers in a muted version of the pattern. Another option is to go for a bold camouflage jacket, which can be paired with cropped skinny jeans or shorts for a modern feel.
