While not very dramatic, this quick test of a raw egg in a tiny iron skillet was interesting - in particular, the structural evidence in the UV image, and also the toxic-green fluorescing yolk. For some reason I had expected the albumen to fluoresce as well, not just the yolk. Turns out eggs are better for breakfast, than for shooting multispectral images (IMO).

The egg in UV is very interesting. But it looks so weird that I'm not sure I could eat it!!
You always find such interesting things to photograph. :D

I kind of want to photograph one myself now, maybe at macro. I don't eat eggs, though, so I would need to find a recipe for it to be part of.
