A dozen duck eggs (really--count them) in the nest in my little neighborhood park...with a touch of replacement coloring by me. :-)

Thanks, Nobinn. Three little boys showed me the nest. The photo looked kind of bland with just the white eggs, so I changed the hue of some egge with the color replacement tool in PS.OK?

Neat find, kk! Uh, where are Mr. and Ms./Mrs. Duck? I like the coloring magic you applied. Jeez...maybe the duck parents saw your photo and said, "These are not our eggs, Edgar. Our eggs are white..." (Yeah, I know...How would a couple of ducks get a BetterPhoto account...)

Thanks Terry and Noel! I also wondered what happened to Mr. and Mrs-s Duck, too. I have a feeling they ducked out! :-)

What a find!! Love that duck egg blue!! I hope some thoughtless human didn't touch the eggs and cause the parents to abandon them. Birds are so sensitive about their privacy. Still, it's a great family portrait, KK :)

Thanks Nobi, Terry, Tammy, Evy, Jim, Humayun, Tom, Debra, Sanjay, and Terry!!!
I wonder if those little eggs ever hatched out pastel ducklings! :-)
Thanks so very much, y'all!
