“The Beatles”

Spotted these two “Jade Headed Buffalo Beatles” in a face-off, on exhibit at the San Diego Zoo. (They are members of the Scarab Beatle family, …Educilla smithi. ) I thought that their striking colors and the composition of their approach toward each other on the branch was intriguing.
