Hatching Magnolia

105mm, f/10, 1/100 second, ISO 400

I can’t help but be reminded of the time I sat with my former roommate at the Museum of Science (in Boston) watching a bird poke through its shell.  The sign by the incubator said that once you saw a hole, the chick would hatch within 24 hours.  We were determined to see the hatching and watched for over an hour when we were kicked out because the museum was closing.  It’s interesting to see this magnolia pushing through its furry cover.  The volunteer at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden said that within 2 or so weeks, the magnolias would be in full bloom.
