Speaking of Mother's Day, look what my parents found buried deep inside one of my dad's rose bushes:
Those are mockingbird eggs. Just before I took this picture we watched the parent birds join forces with a gang of blackbirds and chase off a large hawk. That kept them distracted for long enough that I was able to snap a couple of pictures. Talk about a safe nest-- it's surrounded by wicked sharp thorns!
I hope all the mothers out there reading have had a nice day!
