More from the zoo

This is a Cape Thick-knees -- a bizarre name for a bird, non? This lil' guy reminds me of the stern eagle from The Muppets Show. :) Shot at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. Click to enlarge.

Looks a bit like a doe to me -- but it's a Klipspringer. Native to Africa, apparently this little guy can jump like nobody's business! Click to enlarge.

Some more from the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo (click to enlarge):

"Hi, I'm Wilfred Brimley, and I'd l like to talk to you about diabeetus. Did you know that some Americans don't know about dia... what the hell is that in the sky?"

I have days like this.

I really don't know what motivates these guys to strike these poses in the water -- I'm not sure if they're showing off, or if this is a seal's idea of fun. :)

Mah bukket -- do you has it?

Under De Sea

Today's photos are of iridescent jellyfish as the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. Actually, I'm not sure if these bad boys are glowing, or if they somehow react to blacklight. Either way, they were fascinating. :) Click to enlarge.

Check Out My Pipes

This bear at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha seemed extremely fascinated with his own arms and claws -- he kept stretching them out above himself and looking. Click to enlarge.

Goodbye, Molly

We'll miss you, Molly. You were a good girl.

As of August 30th, 2007, I am now happily married to my wonderful wife, Jasmin. I love you, woman!

I'm back! It's been a crazy month; I got married then I got really sick... and now I'm back up to speed. :)

Today's photo is of a Gibbon at the Omaha Zoo (click to enlarge). My wife decided that since I'd never seen the Omaha Zoo before, it was imperative that I went there forthwith -- and boy, was she ever right. I think I'll be getting a yearly membership!
