Thought it was time for a very cool bug…although I am not sure what he is. He has some pretty serious armor though. (Chiriqui, Panama)

Monkey monkey
You look wrong
mixed-up eyes
just don’t belong.
 
What a sight!
What’s the story?
One blue eye
in all its glory?
 
Are you weird?
A monkey freak?
An oddity?
A furry geek?
 
Or maybe you’re
a special kind
and one blue eye 
is quite refined?
 
Monkey monkey
you’re no fool.
Your one blue eye 
is pretty cool!

Yellow-billed Oxpecker hanging out in a giraffe mohawk. I love these little birds and their unique transportation philosophy. They feed on the ticks of large, short-haired mammals. Hunters–and poachers hate them as they are very alert to danger and warn their moving food supply of the potential risk at hand, which is a very good thing indeed!
