    The owl is my favourite.

    I never realized how thin the beaks of the Black Skimmers are. Makes sense; they fly all day with the lower mandible cutting the surface of the water. Water drag minimization would be very important.

    OK, so in that last one, the black skimmers are reenacting a famous scene from Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, right? That makes it my favorite by default.

        They really do look ominous.

    Yes, not comic, but ominous indeed. What a brilliant photograph!

        I mean, if we hadn’t been ‘primed by the film, they definitely look the way we could have imagined Vogons.

    My favorite: the lions (with the lionesse prostrate). I suppose the caption is “not today, I am having a headache”.
