Personality Plus

When I can’t take any more photos of roseate spoonbills, great egrets, and wood storks – when I have so many shots that I can hardly sort through them – then, and only then, it’s time to wander around the St. Augustine Alligator Farm looking for other photographic subjects.

While I understand that anthropomorphism – attributing human characteristics to a god, animal, or object – is not regarded as the height of critical thinking, how can anyone deny the obvious personalities in these guys?

  1. Or do the images work the other way around? I immediately think of some humans I have seen who look like these prize specimens.

      Laurna – LOL. I googled it and “zoomorphism” means to assign animal characteristics to humans. Who knew?
