Grouse eggs

Up in the mountains, I was pleasantly surprised to find a clutch of grouse eggs. They are naturally a mandala/circle on their own - nests being round, but the intertwining of the twigs in the nest and the grass nearby made interesting patterns for this mandala. There was a pinecone in the nest when I took the picture and at a later date when I looked again there was a dead tigerswallow tail butterfly among the eggs. I did not expect to see either. I'm hoping when I take a peek next weekend that the eggs will be hatched out.
