Delicate Balance of Life

I found these tiny pearlescent eggs tucked away in a small niche under a rotting log. I think they are slug eggs, of what species I have no idea as I have several in my garden. I was and still am so a taken at how fragile-looking they are, how beautiful they are in the light, and yet they are well protected and suited to bring forth new life.

  1. They do look like slug eggs, Pete. I grew up with lots of slugs … big ones, 6 – 8 inches long, some of them. Fascinating to watch them move through their world. I’ve watched a raccoon pick slugs up, roll them back and forth on the ground, dip them in a stream, then eat them. Not my dish of choice. šŸ™‚
