Easter Eggs, an endangered species


In various capacities, I'm covering several egg hunts around town this week.  These eggs weren't so well hidden, so the little ones could find them at Vestavia Hills United Methodist Church yesterday.  More to come, stay tuned.

I dislike Easter Egg hunts when they use plastic eggs...but I supposed they're worried about contamination or whatever; same reason kids don't bob for apples anymore. I never got sick! That's my rant. That said, love the perspective and colors.

This is a study in depth of field. It looks like it could be in a cameral instruction manual.

My boys when they were little always like hunting for treats in plastic eggs, but it was difficult to restrain the older boy from getting too many in comparison to his brother two years younger.

Bibi, I agree. We always found one somewhere in the house a year later!

Dave, thank you for that . BTW, they had this hunt in different places for different ages but many just loaded their buckets, yes now they had buckets and not baskets, to the brim! My granddaughter got a nice amount then quit and let others hunt. I was very proud of her.

I love this shot.

Looking forward to the hunt next week with Little Bit. She gets pretty psyched about opening those plastic eggs. When she was a toddler, I filled them with Cheerios. ;-) (Now she expects more from Monsieur Bunny.)

It's the bench I love!

Beautiful Colours! I love the colourful plastic on the natural wood bench :)

I'm sure you'll eggs-plain your pursuit in the coming days.

I don't like my eggs well-hidden, either. Takes away from shooting time.

The kids on my block were "practicing" for the Easter egg hunt yesterday. Plastic eggs all in the bushes.

An easy way for photographs to find them easily too...

My mom used to hide real Easter eggs, and a few plastic ones...the plastic ones had money in them and were quite the prize!!!

Great shot V! All the better for the bench!!!

Plastic eggs? I've never seen these here, apart from the year-round German chocolate covered ones with toys in them.
