This week’s MotD theme: Dotty for Dots
It’s one thing to see dots on human-made items, but to see them nature-made, makes them much more fascinating. We all know about the obvious “dotted” animals (leopards, cheetah’s dalmations, etc) and I went searching for images of them first…because that’s all I knew. However during my search the “spotting” of this Helmeted Guineafowl came as a complete surprise to me. What an intriguing creature.
I offer these two close up images so that you see some of its more amazing and unique features. I love this guy’s head. Look at the shapes and those colors of the “paper mache-looking” helmet. And how about the white polka dots against its dark grey background. Quite the fashion statement!
And view more wildlife photos by Wikipedia contributor, Goulingken, on his contributions page.
Inspiration for Today
Today MotD encourages us to go beyond our normal safe, comfortable knowledge base, to stretch ourselves, to push the envelope a bit, to learn something new about ourselves. We may be delightfully surprised!
