Tag Archives: Phoenicopterus minor

I don’t know what it is, but I find flamingos completely fascinating. I suppose it could be that they are pink – a color I am hopelessly drawn to when it comes to flowers so why not with birds, too?

No denying it, flamingos are exquisite birds – fluffy poofs of feathers balanced atop spindly legs, long graceful necks and piercing eyes encased in black eyeliner. C’mon, what’s not to love?

This beautiful bird was definitely playing coy with me. Little did it know, s/he had me at ‘pink’. 🙂

It is so nice to be among things having vibrant colors!
