Quail eggs were not on my radar when I stopped at the “No Frills” Superstore to pick up some last minute supplies a few weeks ago, but there they were, on the shelf with all the other eggs … who knew? Certainly not me! I gasped, a photo opportunity in the making …
I was enchanted by the tiny size, the lovely patterns, and the variations in colour. They went from brown to blue and everything in-between.
I quickly set them in my cart and carried on … it’s not that I didn’t have a ton of things to do when I got home, but I dropped everything and spent over an hour photographing these beauties.
To demonstrate scale, I used peppercorns in my little scene. Everyone knows the size of a peppercorn, so when set side-by-side, it becomes obvious as to how small these eggs really are when compared to regular eggs.
Of course I had to cook up a few … steamed in a double boiler in one of my new dishes …
A little play with kk_melancholy …
