>The Beauty of Flamingos


We often think of flamingos as funny pink birds which turn home decor items into whimsical tropical treasures…

Flamingos are actually gregarious wading birds – – six flamingo species are recognized by most sources.

It is well known that Flamingos often stand on one leg, the other tucked beneath the body. Apparently the
reason for this behavior is not fully understood. Some suggest that the
flamingo, like some other animals, has the ability to have half of its
body go into a state of sleep, and when one side is rested, the flamingo
will swap legs and then let the other half sleep, but this has not been proven. We don't know why either, but still think they are a very unique and beautiful part of coastal wildlife.

I especially love the close up of the one looking right at the camera eye to eye. They are so graceful, they almost look as though they are doing a beautiful ballet. A dance in the making. So pretty.I really loved the group in the shape of the flamingo, now how do you think they did that? Very interesting.Thank you for the beautiful share today. I so loved my visit. Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
