    I think it looks like the top one is fertile. See the white dot? It will be the center of a bullseye with white rims around it if it's fertile.

    Top one may be fertile, tho no well defined bullseye.
    Bottom one I can't even see the blastocell.

    Hard to take good, clear pics of yolks,
    to position any glare away from blastocell and have it in focus,
    keep practicing.
