Default New Bee discovered, entertaining name chosen.

I find this amusing:

What do you do when you have to name a brand new species? Some opt for using some defining physical feature. Others use their own name. Andre Nemesio, from the Universidade Federal de Uberlândia, in Brazil, went for something a bit different: he and his team just named a brand new orchid bee Euglossa bazinga, after the catch phrase used by Sheldon Cooper on the television show “The Big Bang Theory.”

No kidding. That eagle sure would have. That is incredible. I thought eagles more looked for something moving across the ground, like a rabbit or squirrel. Not only that, I thought eagles more age fish taken from a river. That baby came damned near losing his life.

It was on ABC nightly news tonight. It is a hoax done by a special effects school in Monteal. They do a couple a year to show off their skills. Also that is a Harpeys eagle that lives in South America.

I have seen hawks and even a Golden eagle snatch prey, usually it is something relatively stationary. A moving target is not so easy to snatch. A baby sitting in a field wearing a monkey hat (or was it Elmo?) would be a perfect target.

I'm thinking those cute little animal hats are not such a good idea after all.

There you go ruining all our fun! It is pretty good though. But it does look like a Golden eagle to me. Are they similar to the Harpey's?
