The Miracle of Eggs

All over the World at this time of year, millions of eggs are being incubated ready for a new generation of birds. Eggs are something we all take for granted, but they are a miracle of evolution. 

They have been so successful for creation, millions of years before humans ever appeared on the planet. Quite a thought ! Completely self contained they possess all the ingredients and DNA outside the parents to become new life. We are privileged to witness something that has successfully happened since the age of the Dinosaurs !

 These are some pics of previous years hatchings, and swans eggs that were abandoned in the harbour back in 2007. 

The tennis ball in the centre was just to show the scale size.
