Sunday photoblogging: the last of the fall flowers and a surprise

i was deadheading the orange coneflower in the front garden patch late this afternoon so the remaining blossoms would have a chance to bask in all their glory before the hard frost hits that's expected around tuesday or wednesday...


i lifted up the stems and blossoms and, lo and behold, what did i find...!


yes, a clutch of hatched quail eggs... there are a ton of quail in the area but it was amazing to find them here, particularly given that the nest is right next to the front porch and the parents had to sneak in and out without being seen... they did a right good job of not being discovered...
