Your found a lot of great shots at the zoo. I haven't been there in years as our grandson doesn't seem interested in animals.
I like the fence, I haven't seen that before.

I like this very much. You capture the essence of a unique creature.

Carol said...

I love flamingos! What a great shot...and what a long neck..

Carly said...

neat shot!!

I am astounded by the fragility and beauty of many of our shore waders. The colouring of the flamingo is unique in the birdworld. It is as though a famous designer has created a new work of art for the coming year.

Such a good reflection to show the fineness of the legs.

I also like the photograph of you and your grandson at the zoo. So envious. I dont have one of those yet!!

That's neat. It's like the never ending flamingo. The neck meets the reflection and the circle begins. Do people still put the fake ones on their lawns? :)

Ebie said...

You captured this very well and the reflection make their legs even longer!
The last time I was in the zoo was summer of last year and i was not into blogging yet, and no reflections meme yet!

Hehehe! We have a membership and we might go back!

One of my very favorite birds! I really do have a ceramic/stuffed collection. :)
I've seen shots across the net and never noticed their pink 'knees' before.
Lovely wavy reflections!
