11 masterfully painted eggs, straight from the bird

Eggs are remarkable things. A bird's flight would be mighty beleaguered carrying the weight of a baby, and thus, the egg. It's like an exterior womb where the baby grows and is nurtured until it has developed enough to survive. Although a brilliant solution, it has its risks; mainly in that eggs become easy-to-purloin sources of protein for predators.

Because of their vulnerability, eggs have adapted specific colors and patterns to help create camouflage with their surroundings and specific types of nests. And as for bright blue and other vividly colored eggs, scientists are still trying to figure that one out, but they note that most mammal predators are dichromats and have limited color vision. Birds are sensitive to color, and vibrant eggs may serve them better.
