I sure hope the mother was close by, Jeannie. The color of the eggs are so gorgeous. Congratulations on a wonderful win.

Thanks PV for choosing my photo today! Thanks Linn and Kirsten for your comments. Kirsten...sad to say the parents deserted the 5 eggs :( ...I hadn't seen them going in & out of the nest box for a couple of weeks and decided to check the box. . We had several weeks of temps 105 - 110 and no rain before they deserted. I don't know if that's the reason or not. I was so looking forward to seeing baby Bluebirds. This was the first year for my box to be nested in.

A great shot with such pretty soft blues, Jeannie! Terrific theme winner too...but such a sad story to accompany it. Congrats on your grand winner!

Thanks Patrice. Hopefully next spring they will return and try again.

Lovely capture Jeannie ... but oh how sad to think they'd been deserted, perhaps they hadn't survived the heat? .. many congrats on your win!

Beautiful blue eggs. Sad to hear about the parents. It has been a horribly hot summer.
