    Neat Pictures

    My wife sent me this website she stumbled upon, and it has some great invert pictures, there are also a few reptiles pics too. I wish I could take pictures like that, and I wish I had some of those bugs!

    "Hey, let's take a bunch of pics of the weirdest looking creatures we can find." Hahaha... but very cool, though. I wish I had a camera lens that could do that!

    I like the solifugid pic. And what is up with that baby bird's beak?? Why does it look like that w/ the blue and yellow bulges?

    and bonus points for anyone who can tell me, biologically speaking, what those "bird bumps" are and why they're there.

    I obviously don't know because that's what I wanted to find out!

    Edit:... and I love that in being proactive and trying to Google the answer the results come up with this thread. Lots of help, Google!

    I still stand by my statement that the bumps are bizarre, haha. Do they have an official anatomical name?
