Hatched Coreid Eggs

June 26, 2010 | Twelvestones, Roswell, GA, USA

I spotted these hatched eggs while strolling through a local park. I like how they have a sort of dashed “break here to exit” line at one end. I also like how you can see the cell structure making up the eggs, a bunch of little hexagons. I only wished I’d found them before they hatched.

I’m not really happy with this photo. I really need some way to easily diffuse my flash in the field. Not only are there flash hotspots, but you can actually see a recognizable reflection of the camera on each shell. Nonetheless, I thought the eggs themselves were worthy of a post.

I have to mention I’d probably never have known what kind of eggs these were without the help of a great new book I recently picked up:
