Mrs. Robin has been busy.

I saw the robin fly away from her nest and I quick got outside and took this picture. I had to reach up and just hope that I got the camera in the best position to shoot. FOUR eggs and aren't they the most gorgeous blue?
I guess she was off to have some dinner before the rain came. This was how the sky looked when I was out there taking a picture of the eggs.
It poured. We had lots of thunder but no lightening but everything looks soooooo greeeeeeeeen. I can't get enough looking at it. I can still see the white landscape in my brain. I want to replace it with this green lush color soaked vision.

    They are outstanding!!! Oh, I wonder if you'll be able to capture anymoe photos? We have a nest up in the rafters of a second story deck and I'm hoping they nest again in it this year.

  2. I hope I can without scaring anybody. I thought there was a nest in my flower pot, that hangs on the wall by my front door.
    I could hear and see Purple Finches flying around on the porch. I put the camera up to the pot thinking I would just get a picture of the eggs when TWO BIRDS flew out of the nest! I can't believe the babies were that big already. Now, I'm really curious to get a picture and see if it's empty or not.

  3. Bea, I love that nest photo. What a beautiful shade of blue. I have an acrylic paint bottle of Robin's Blue Egg and it doesn't even come close to the real thing.
    We've had strange weather. We had hot winds yesterday afternoon and lost power by the evening cause they were so strong.

  4. Oh those eggs are so beautiful. Well done for pinching a quick shot. That sky looks so menacing. I agree, everything here is looking beautifully green, including the long grass which badly needs cutting!! Our windows have come today for the extension. Hoorah!!

  5. Everytime I go to the bedroom window to peek out at the robin she GLARES back at me. It's amazing how a bird with no real expression on her face can actually GLARE at you. lol
