Macro Monday: Egg

Monday, March 6th, 2017

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Egg.” The instructions were so simple, they didn’t exist. Simply “egg.”

Candy Spring

I bought some miniature Cadbury candy eggs for this challenge since I had used real eggs for a recent Macro Monday (It’s A-Peeling to Me). These candy eggs look and feel like real wild bird’s eggs and taste like M&Ms. (Psst, they are delicious with coffee!) I didn’t just want to shoot the eggs by themselves, so I created a candy nest in which they could nestle. Chow mien noodles coated in melted chocolate chips and formed into a nest shape made a perfect resting spot for these sweet treats. Then I decided to take it one step further and gently placed my little creation in our blooming rose bush, framing the scene with some natural greenery from the bush.

I had a couple of other images that almost made the cut too.

Cadbury Cuteness

I love love love the robin’s egg blue candy egg. It looks so real! For this one, I put my candy nest next to a freshly potted plant with a tiny blossom.

Sweetness in Nature

This was actually my favorite of all the images, but the frame is wider than three inches so it wouldn’t meet the requirements for the Macro Monday group. I nestled my little haystack chow mien noodles with the tiny Cadbury candy eggs down into a bush. I think it looks quite real!
