Comfortable Surroundings

I decided to look through my files this weekend and post a couple interesting images that I have been meaning to for a while now. This particular photo was of a Killdeer resting on its nest earlier this year. Eggs laid by Killdeer look very similar to the surrounding stones which is the reason they feel most comfortable nesting in gravel filled areas such as this.

    It’s wonderful that you were able to capture such a special, still moment – those are rare (at least when photographers like me are around!).

    if there’re eggs there, they’re sure camouflaged! (sp)
