And on a lighter note...

I made a visit to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens this morning, and encountered this Komodo Dragon (Varanus komodoensis) mugging for my camera:


I also got up close and personal with an Inca Tern (Larosterna inca):


And a Green-winged Macaw (Ara chloroptera) and Blue and Yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna) obligingly groomed each other for me:


The tern and macaws are native to South America; the dragon is from Indonesia.
