I can still remember the feeling I had when this beauty suddenly started walking toward me and flapping it’s wings, no more birds and animals turning their backs to me, but a full on show off displaying all their wonderful glory!

    I wish a good looking male, about 55 or so, would do the same to me!
    I was going to upload a flamingo…going to leave it for a while…this is just too damn good!
    Huge hugs!

  • I was so pleased to finally have any creature stare full on into the camera for a change! It’s a standing joke with my family that the second I get my camera out, kids run off and animals show me their behinds! hahahaha. Go on and upload your flamingo, I’ve got a few more already on here hidden just ready to upload when I next have some free time…….time I’ll find more of if you go ahead and upload…pretty please :))) xx

    Lissy this is Masterful!!! Really glorious blending and fabulously layered!!! And the composition is fantastic as well! I am almost speechless… but, then, you know me! lololol
    It really is a stunner – something to puff your own feathers up about!!!
    Bravo, my friend!!! ~Kim

  • aww bless you Kim, I think I processed this one at the end of November, just before the mad Christmas rush, had a glorious week of me time for a change and went all out processing tons of work, this was definitely one of my favourites from the summer :))

    A beauty capture, Lissy! And congrats on getting a front view. I, too, have witnessed many beasties bums over the years. I also remember the song “Pretty Flamingo”. Manfred Mann, 1966. I was but a youth in Embra at the time it came out.

  • cheers Mike, it’s so frustrating isn’t it when they all turn their back on you! :)) The family just fall about laughing, I’m thinking maybe I should camouflage my camera next time I go out! hahaaha
    The song was also a little bit before my time, but only just, so I remember it well :))

    Magnificent work Sarah!!…beautiful processing and colours and your timing was perfect!!

  • thank you Kate, I’m thanking the fact that I insisted on the family help me carry my tripod around with me and that there were loads of benches for them to sit on whilst I indulged and waited patiently for something to happen, thank goodness this one decided to show off :))
