Archosaurs in Omaha

Recently, I had the awesome chance to visit the zoo in Omaha. Sprawling over 130 acres, it has to be one of the best zoos I've ever visited. Naturally, hundreds of pics were taken by me, including mammals, fish, archosaurs... Bah, who cares about the first two, let's see some archosaurs!

Gentoo penguin, with king, rockhopper, and macaroni penguins in the background.

Crested pigeons.

Cinnamon teal, I think...

Hadada ibis

Scarlet macaw

African black-footed penguins.

Some duck...

Some other duck...

  1. I went to a contemporary art fair in Shanghai recently, which was a real eye-opener. Chinese contemporary art has come leaps and bounds from the watery Zen landscapes to huge canvases of strange-looking beings. The prices being asked and paid were huge too.
    Oriental, if not Chinese, my print of Jean-Léon Gérôme's painting, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWS6R, bought some time ago from wahooart.com, is as lovely as ever.
