Those are certainly colorful eggs. Do you eat them?

Ha, interesting shot! The warm white balance works well here. Was that taken at closest focusing distance?

@Slowpez: Quail eggs are downright tasty. These are hard boiled. You shell them, dip them in a little GOOD sea salt (Maldon, Ile de Re or smoked Salish) and pop them in your mouth as a one-biter.

@Na Horuk: I was really close! I think minimum focus for the F35-70 is something like 12" or so for macro mode and I was pushing that. Ambient light was garbage. High ISO, slow shutter. I got lucky on this shot and the olives. The smoked trout and oysters didn't make it. White balance was a lost cause.
