egg seven

This unique surface can also be seen on the seventh egg found on the most northerly point of the Southern Island of New Zealand. The gentle ribs of the gleaming, skin-like surface of the egg have pushed back the rough and stony parts. Thus the egg seems to become part of the surrounding sand. This camouflage is yet balanced by its colour and its cool rigidity. As soft as the white sand trickles through the open fingers, as smooth and rigid the stony surface nestles into the hand.
