With more rain in the forecast,
it doesn't look as though I'll be getting out very soon.
(How much 'guilt free' sewing can a girl do?)
So, I thought I'd revisit some earlier sunny days
during my recent visit to Florida.
I was quite enamored with this little killdeer
who sat religiously on her nest,
rain or shine.
But one day, as I walked past her, she was stretching her legs.
When I looked 'killdeer' up in the bird book,
it said they generally have 4 blotchy, spotted, brownish eggs.
So, I zoomed in and looked all around the rocks
where she made her nest,
and lo and behold,
I know, I know, they are difficult to see.
I'll try zooming in on them a little.
Still hard to see, but that's the point, isn't it?
Mother Nature designed the eggs to be camouflaged.
But she didn't give the poor little killdeer much common sense.
They aren't very discriminating where they build their nests.
This one is in an empty trailer lot
inbetween the 2nd and 3rd trailer on the left.
