What you can't see is the full beard.

Check out the spine in the bottom picture. That blows me away.

Please allow me a little verbosity. I taught biology, including embryology, for years, and would point out that the human ovum (egg) is about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. it pops out of a little "pimple" on the ovary, migrates down a tube where it takes in its boyfriend. The sperm cell is visible only with microscope, but each carries half of the genes. Then mitosis occurs, one cell becomes two, two to four, four to eight, etc.etc. almost ad infinitum. They reach the uterus, and form a nest. Meanwhile, DNA turns on and off and on and off, differentiation occurs, organs and systems form....True, we know a lot now about how this proceeds, but if you want to view these pictures and see this precious child/grandchild/nephew/cousin, come to life, and call it a miracle, I won't object. I'll join you. It almost truly is.

I forgot to add: Whe he gets there, the sperm decides whether it will be a boy or a girl. Up to you, Ez.
