This thread will be similar to another that's already out there, but I wanted this one to focus specifically on beauty - are there any animals that you are nonplussed by when you look at pictures on the internet, but you find stunning when you are at the zoo? For me, this happens often with birds. I find the colors in photos are not adequately captured because of the way the light reflects off their feathers. Whenever I used to look at pictures of the blue-crowned motmot, for example, I would think to myself, "Why are they so popular?" They were such a plain-looking bird! Then I saw one in a zoo and was impressed with how pretty they actually are. Anyone else have species like this, where you were impressed by them only AFTER seeing them in person?
