Fertile egg? Pics

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have read and looked at a ton of pics on here and I did look to see if there was a specific place I was supposed to post this, so apologies if that's the case.

 

Two questions.  First the pics they are both of the same egg and sorry for the blurriness but any help is much appreciated.  I'm honestly not sure if it's just a big blastodisc or if it's fertilized.  In person the white spot is more defined.

 

 

Second question...any tips on taking pics like these to get better quality when asking people they're opinions?  Tips for avoiding glare, too much shadow, etc?  I was using a very new smartphone.

Im not an expert but I am pretty sure that that one is not fertilized. Sorry :(. Also, if you put your hand next to the egg or a penny in there then it has something to focus on. Goodluck!

Thank you CT.  I have spent alot of time looking at those pictures.  I think like other people on here say, when I finally do get one, I'll know it.
