I really didn’t see it when I was taking the shot, but as soon as I opened the image on the big screen, the shadow took on the shape of a gator…with his mouth open….right around the baby flamingo’s little head!! By the look in his eyes, I think he saw it too!!
You know, I’ve heard for years that dogs grow into their feet. Well, this little fellow has a heap of growing to do to grow into that beak!!
