Happy Mother's Day!




This particular mother has 4 perfectly blue eggs.  Have you ever seen a more beautiful blue than a robin's egg?  Hmmm, maybe something sparkly that comes in a Tiffany box.  And those are also a miracle of nature.

I caught this patient mother at Richfield lake.

Happy Mother's day to all feathered mothers, scaly mothers, furry mothers and human mothers.  Did I forget anyone?

You are correct: There is nothing more perfect than a blue Robin's egg! Great nest photo.

I always think there is a kind of resolute solidness to a bird sat on a nest - a kind of "I'm not moving" sort of attitude.
