whoa? wow, a duck nest in the park!!!
Great shot, Kathkk!!!
...great coloring, too... I got to know how you did that... #239071

Kathleen K. Parker 4/20/2005 8:47:44 PM

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?

What a wonderful lucky find and capture, kk. Very creative with the coloring, too. I love it. #1277364

Noel Baebler 4/21/2005 6:21:14 PM

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...) #1278351

Kathleen K. Parker 4/21/2005 7:27:18 PM

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 :)
