Lightning88, an interesting creature indeed as, I can recall how my mom used to have a a whole bunch of plastic garden flamingo's in the back yard and all.

I want some plastic flamingos, but Mom said it was too tacky for this neighborhood. But at least she got me two big ceramic ones. We're about to put them out in the backyard! :)

Inspired by lightning's intense interest in flamingos....

I present my Quick Art version of a rather bulky flamingo that has been rudely interrupted from an afternoon snooze.

I don't have a pink dry-erase marker so I used black, red, and a hint of purple. Total time for completion... 27 seconds.

I think it's beautiful! Thank you! :D

Thank you and you're welcome. :D

Fun Flamingo Fact of the Day:

The flamingo is unique in that both parents provide their young with a type of milk called crop milk.

I've read that flamingos are very, very dedicated parents. That's really nice of them :)

BTW, I saw the flamingos at the zoo again last Wednesday! w00t! :D
