Flamingo Fashionista

Such stunning colors in these birds, I used just about every red I own to get it something like the actual color.

I took this photo last Xmas at Busch Gardens in Florida, I loved to watch them grooming, (I sat for about an hour taking many photos). Such a parade of legs and feathers, not to mention their necks!

No double chins on this fashionista.

Thanks girls, they certainly are the most gorgeous shades of red and orange. I know I did not get all that in this one, but I think I came close. Fun to do also.

Oooooh - those colors really grab me. Great job. Now, how do we get bird chins??
Hugs,

Thanks Vic, and yes, if we could twist around like this, there would not be an ounce of fat on us, or any of those voluptuous double chins.
But we would have to catch our own fish and eat them raw.. tee hee.
