I was pretty happy with the Pied-billed Grebe shot I shared yesterday. But I took things to a whole new level today. You see, it is a little-known fact that licking Pied-billed Grebes can cause some crazy hallucinations, much like licking certain amphibians. After hearing tales of such activities from more experienced birders I decided to try it today for the first time while visiting Legoland with the family and all I can say is “WOW!”
Desi might be scarred for life after watching his father experience the insanity of tripping on Pied-billed Grebe secretions.

Shortly after licking a Pied-billed Grebe the visual hallucinations start.
The colors become more and more intense
Eventually the Pied-billed Grebe licker can barely function and becomes little more than a gibbering fool.
The colors! The colors! They burn my eyes! (Click to embiggen.)
Eventually I was forcibly escorted from Legoland, multi-colored water dripping from my body. This is an epic vacation!
