Argument between an Ellipsoid and a Whorl?

Reminds me of this rhyme from my childhood:

From A Space Child's Mother Goose by Frederick Windsor, illustrated by Marian Perry. Simon and Schuster, 1958
(This is available in reprint, on Amazon. I highly recommend it to those that love technology, art, parodies, and vocabulary.)

The colloid and the crystalloid
Were fighting just in jest.
The colloid called the crystalloid
A pseudo-anapest.*
Some called them physical and some called them chemic,
And some thought the whole affair was slightly academic.

Footnote *
The pseudo-anapest
Moves awkwardly at best.
Its feet are long, uneven, and retractile.
Who hunts this beast in rhythm
Must take his meter withm,
And still may only bag a ptero-dactyl.

I'm a great fan of the illustrations in the book, done by an artist with a technical ink pen, I'm sure. (rapidiograph, etc)
It's all 1950's high tech stuff, and still topical today.

oh, btw, I like the image, but it seems to have a strange color in the orange/pink, near the eye and beak of the bird
Shouldn't it be much more close to white?

Look at the image in this link for comparison

Now is strange, I never noticed that before, those colors do not appear on the original posted in my gallery Maybe Greg, just maybe the bird must be blushing at the critter on your nose.

Hey Gregory, I know its not a bug, I used that phrase in context of that other FAA member who called it a bug, its a humming bird. Your love of nature speaks for itself and the results are BRAVA,
