Robin Eggs

I still don’t get it how robin eggs can be such a vibrant shade of blue and the species somehow survives. Doesn’t the bright blue attract predators? They might as well be wearing high visibility vests and have those flash light things to signal the runway for planes.

Perhaps the blue was meant to be the sky.
Perhaps predators were conned into thinking that there’s a bit of sky in each robin’s nest.
Perhaps the blue is a sign of a sickly, rotten egg… so bad that all the other animals stay away from the pong.

It’s funny how nature is.

Needs some work with alignment, but this Swissa Junior is going to be fantastic.
