Blue Monday


No bluebird for Blue Monday with Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com. Just the remains of the bird's blue egg.


This little egg stayed all together when it fell out of the nest.

I placed it on this little branch for a different shot.

These two photos are of another one. It actually fell onto this little leaf and stayed there. It was cracked, which made it stick and stay better.

I do not know why they fell out. Perhaps another bird attacked the nest. I never saw a bird - mother or baby.

It's hard to know about those little bird eggs.... Obviously they got out of the nest. They look like Robin Eggs ---and Robins do have nests in the trees....

Great pictures for BLUE Monday though...

Hugs,
Betsy

That little bird egg is so sweet. Buddy and I adore our bird and get so tickled when we find a nest to follow. The way it looks on the leaf is really nice. Pretty clever.

Hugs,
Genie

So sorry you won't get to enjoy the little birds. We lost some last year as well as hummingbird eggs. I was very disappointed.

Such a pretty shade of blue. Happy Blue Monday.

It´s so sad when eggs fall out the nest. This egg has a gorgeous color though.

Sometimes the parents do it intentionally. They know if the egg is rotten.

Cheers!

My Blue Monday.

Hi LV
So sad the eggs fell out of the nest. I bet some sort of critter was messing with them.
What a pretty blue color they are.
Hope you have a lovely Monday.
Hugs, Mary

those eggs are AMAZING... gorgeous colour!

Mel Cole of PA, USA said...

When I saw them, I first thought of Robin's eggs. They lay eggs once in my Mil's fushia hanging pot. The egg that you saw is very interesting that it fell and stick itself in the branch of leaves.

My Blue Monday post is in my Heart's content blog. See ya!

Eden said...

Great photos. Such a pretty egg. Love the colour.

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Very neat shots! I really like the way the green frames the blue egg. I think your photography is getting better all the time.

You are so right! A new day. That´s all I ask for.
But in a kind of way I have started a new life after surviving cancer.

Best wishes from Sweden

That's too bad it fell out. It's such a pretty shade of blue. It reminds me of an Easter egg! Thanks for visiting my blue water fountain!
