Crazy settings but was readying for birds when I almost stepped on the eggs. Didn't want to stay around or bother - so quickly took the photo and walked away.

I really like this! The DOF is perfect to not make the eggs the focus of the image. That way the viewer can see how they blend in to the rocks.  The colors are nice, as well.

Fine off-center composition, the eggs look lovely in this.

Great sighting and cool composition-I can't imagine a bird being born amongst those rocks! Great camouflage.
