Eggs of Red Wattled Lapwing-2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Here is an earlier photo of the eggs of Red Wattled Lapwing. In this relatively long shot one can see how perfectly camouflaged the eggs are on the ground. The nest site is in a cultivated wheat field as rows of dry stalk of wheat are still visible. The month is that of June when the harvest is done. Hope friends will enjoy this and hope too that the first day of 2010 was good...thanks.|

This is a shot showing how well camouflaged a plover's nest can be! It is usually found by accident as the eggs look like balls of dried earth. Though usually the anxious parents give a hint that they have a nest in the area.
Thanks and best wishes for 2010,
Ciao Abid, interesting capture of well camouflaged eggs, same color of ground, like little stones, great details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
Gracias primero por tus amables comentarios. Después decir que valoro enormemente tu trabajo por su gama de colores y por el detalle que tan bien observaste del nido. Un trabajo diferente y muy realista.
