It isn't necessarily important to know that this guy is a collared aracari. A toucan by any other name is, after all, still a toucan. When I look at him (or her, who can tell?) I'm struck by how simplicity (or non-complexity if you prefer) really has become very important. Why make things difficult when they don't have to be? Why go looking for more than you have, or need? This desire for more, or something bigger, or even something new and exciting, is something unique to humans. Nature doesn't require it. In fact, nature probably rebels from it in a way by keeping its creatures humble. I'm thinking there's lots that's important that can be learned from seeing nature, from listening to what it has to say to us. What do you think?
