Latin LOLCat: Rara Avis

Here is today's Latin LOLCat. The phrase "rara avis" is sometimes used in English, and you can see the same Latin root for "bird" in our word "aviary." When it comes to birds, the "black swan" is a proverbial rare bird, but the phrase can be used to describe anything that is surpassing strange. If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Rara avis.

A rare bird.
