another snail spotting!..and a tragedy

I was taking out the garbage and look what I found on top of our recycling bin! Another snail! These things are EVERYWHERE this year! I think I have enough photos to start a snail collection.

But then, when I turned around to go back in, I spotted a teeny little blue speck. I thought it was a bit of plastic garbage, but bent down to pick it up to throw away, I saw with some sadness that it was half of a perfect little blue egg. Empty. :(

It must have fallen out of the robin's next that's on top of our rain spout. Poor mommy bird.
