She Shoots...She Scores!

I can't believe I was able to get these pics!  So excited to actually see the tiny blue robin eggs in mama's nest!  We've never had a bird nest located in a place low enough to actually get a photo of the inside of it. This one is still situated just out of eye-view (even if you stand on tippy-toes) but not out of the eye of the camera held at arms length above my head. I took a chance that I was aiming in the right direction and after a few failed attempts, I finally got it right!
I always wait until mama leaves the nest to take a break (or look for food) before I take any pictures because I hate to disturb her motherly duties of egg hatching.

i love that term...she shoots, she scores. Lots of instances we can use that term. Love the pics. Look at that color!!!!!!

So amazing!!! I had to laugh when I realized where the nest was from the last pics, but mama must feel safe there or she wouldn't have used it again. Thank you for showing them, I've never seen robin's eggs before...beautiful color!

Are those eggs the most lovely shade of blue?! Paint chips will never beat natural color. Thanks to you and mama robin for sharing.
