The Daily Post, weekly photo challenge, is to share the unexpected.
The most recent unexpected event I could think of was our visit to Celestun, Yucatan to see real live flamingos. Not flamingos that stand around in a pond at the zoo…but real live flamingos, in the wild, in their own habitat, with their families and their friends…NOT surrounded by screaming children with nowhere to go and nowhere to fly.
Fortunately, for the flamingos, the boat we hired was only allowed to get within a certain distance. Unfortunately for my photography we couldn’t get closer.
I could have watched these pink creatures all day. Tina and I both have a long standing love for these unique creatures. So having the opportunity to see hundreds of them at one time was a dream come true.
Just remember not to stand beneath them when they are flying overhead! 🙂
agreed!! Good thinking Emilio!!
It’s a big, pink blob of them! 🐩 It’s so much nicer to see animals in their true habitat.
Sorry, I didn’t have a pink flamingo emoji, so I had to use a pink poodle… ha ha!
LOL…pink flamingo, pink poodle….is there really a difference?!!
Love that last shot. One taking off, the rest watching, waiting…maybe they were too lazy to take off and rather have a quiet paddle 😀
It was funny to watch groups of them do just that…some take off, some watch, but no matter what they seemed in constant motion
I bet that was amazing. More than I’ve ever seen at one time. (Zoo)
It really was amazing!
