Two cardinals, both alike in dignity

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 26, 2009

Remarkable photo of a gynandromorphic cardinal with bilateral asymmetry, meaning that the left side of the bird is male and the right side is female…a red/brown split right down the middle.

Not Photoshopped, although the phenomenon is more common with butterflies. (thx, jason)

Update: Here’s a two-tone lobster caught in Maine in 2006. (thx, nicole & jim)
