The theme this week was to use only 3 colors. Though this is not at all like the samples that Michael shared with us, it does only use 3 colors (not counting white which was allowed). This is the Piping Plover and her chick which are endangered and found here on our New Jersey coastline. You will often find their nesting areas roped off as their nest is really just a small depression in the sand making it much too easy for predators to find. As with a lot of animals, the plover's colors help to camouflage it but their eggs and their chicks are often stepped on or run over on the beaches because they are so well camouflaged. Crows and foxes and some varieties of gulls will eat them.
Okay, I'm off to the picnic now to check out all the Picnicker's choices of 3 colors. You can join me by clicking here. And should you care to join in next week the theme is PLUMP.
