Dragon's child

   Here's a shot from the seahorse farm I visited on the big Island. One of my Japanese friends just told me that the word for seahorse is たつのおとしご (tatsunootoshigo). "Tatsu" is "dragon", "no" is "of", "otoshi" is "illegitimate/bastard", and "go" is "child". So a seahorse is the bastard child of a dragon. Pretty funny!
