Flamingos~

If the headlines are stressing you out,

why not fly with me to visit some flamingos.

These lucky flamingos in Argentina, take off, at the slightest hint of trouble,

and flaming go!

Greater Flamingos,

and Lesser Flamingos, are just as adept at flaming going!

Wish we all could do the same.

Cheers to you from The Holler~

Note: I am currently hunkering down at The Holler and am posting some older photos you may not have seen.

  1. Fiction will never be stranger that nature. Astaxanthin & canthaxanthin and boiled shrimp and crabs. Turns out you can get those in pill form, the chemicals that is. Who wants to become flamingo pink?

  2. I was reading up on Flamingos lately. Well, I first was looking for Flamenco and Carlos Montoya and somehow the spelling turned to yes – you guessed it Flamingos. Perhaps it was serendipity. Anyway, I did not know that flamingos are monogamous by nature, and only lay around one egg per year. And even more interesting, it takes flamingos about three years to get their pink and red feathers. I thought they were born pink!! Another amazing post, Cindy.

  4. Stunning photos. We have been under lockdown, once again, for over a week. However, I drove past many on my way to Port-la-Nouvelle a few days before lockdown and saw many Les Flamants Roses. xx

  6. Sensational! These are definitely something I would love to see in the wild…as of now…I’ve only seen them in captivity, and even then, they are fascinating and beautiful.
