August 17

I've seen this bird in fields here; it's called a yellow-billed magpie. Sitting in this palm tree I think it looks more like a tropical penguin.  So this photo is a good example of the really intense midday light I wrote about yesterday.  I sort of hate to post it next to yesterday's, which I really like.  I think this one is ok-ish.  Mainly I like it for the graphic pop-art feel it has with the really intense colors.  It looks like the bird should be a mascot on a cereal box I think...Frooty Tropical Penguin Flakes, maybe.
