Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #126:Rare Whte Scales

"In the time of your life, live - so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite variety and mystery of it all."

-William Saroyan

Let's mix things up by adding some variety to the assignment. Here you see a RARE WHITE SCALY, alligator that I photographed last year at the, California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. He is gorgeous and fun to photograph, but it's the fact of how rare he is that got me thinking. He isn't just an alligator, he is RARE, SCALY, and WHITE! So, let's take on those topics. Show us something RARE. WHITE. Or SCALY. :)

Extra Credit: Show us all three possibilities!
