D.C. Biker Gangs

While walking to the Jefferson Memorial, I heard loud music approaching me from behind. What I saw was part party, part road race. This group of illuminated cyclists (with the occasional motorized skateboard and scooter) took a couple of minutes to pass because of their numbers, not their speed. I asked one member that had stop by the side of the road if this was some kind of flash mob. His reply? “It is like the fight club, what is done in the fight club, stays in the fight club.” Click on the image for a larger view.

Alligator Gar

Alligator gar are a fresh water fish, mostly found in Southern US States. These are small for the species. Documents have shown these fish can grow up to 10 ft. (3 m) in length. Overfishing and habitat destruction has impacted the population, which are declining in numbers. They are known as “primitive fish” as they retain characteristics of their ancestors from 100 million years ago. These are for sale at the fish market at the Wharf in Washington, DC.
