Watery Wednesday #20

I don't think I've ever seen a flamingo play in the water the way this one did. He couldn't seem to get enough of dunking itself in the water. I'm glad I was able to get some pretty good shots.

You know what's funny, I live in Forida and have only ever seen those plastic pink flamingos people put in their yard! The real ones are so much prettier, great photos.

I have been on a few tropical vacations now and always dreamed of seeing flamingos and still have not had the chance. So I welcome these beautiful pictures you captured - I just love their colors!!!

I think flamingos are one of the most fascinating birds around...funny and graceful all at the same time. Great shots here...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Oh my goodness - REAL ones and not the plastic kind! Nice photos. ;-)

That's a pretty pink flamingo. The funny thing about Florida is that you would think it is the state bird by the stereotype of the plastic ones featured on lawns, but they are not native here, nor do you ever see them. We do have spoonbills though ...

kden said...

Oh I'm so jealous of you to be able to see these beautiful birds in person. This is one bird I have never seen. Such beautiful shots; magazine worthy!

Barbara said...

Looks like he is talking to you in the last shot. Love them

I think I've only seen these in person one time. I love flamingos. My daughter gave me a small purse with one on it for Christmas.
You captured them beautifully!
