Watery Wednesday #61

My, my, my! Where does the time go? It's that time of the week again. Thought I'd share a couple of my favorite flamingo shots from the Los Angeles Zoo. I'd say this is definitely wet! How cyber wet can you get today? Have fun and don't forget those cyber galoshes!

And all this time I thought they were born on sticks in yards in Florida. Whaddya know about that? Learn something every day doncha?

Great shots and the reflection of the other flamingos in the first photo is pretty cool.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Yes, the flamingos are wet indeed and entertaining as well. They are not as pink as the ones I sometimes see on lawns here. ;-)

Maggie May said...

Beautiful flamingoes.

Michael said...

Nice shots. Like the flamingo dunk and splash of the second shot, though without the first shot we'd be wondering what on earth it was. :)

Beautiful shots of the Pink Flamingo.

Joops said...

She is beautiful, look at that red color in her. Great shots!

Come and swim with the Whale shark

Tink *~*~* said...

Love that deep, salmony color! The ones at Busch Gardens in Tampa are that color all over - very impressive when you see a whole mob of them together!

I don't know that I've ever seen flamingos doing anything but standing around, mainly on one leg, but to see them swimming, how neat.
Great shots, Ms Saxy!

Nicole said...

That Flamingo sure is having a blast :)

That's an incredible capture~

Erik "Semlan" said...

I really like your frozen water splash in the second picture. Lovely! Is it true that the feather colour on the Pink Flamingo is from what they eat, small scrimps? Im publish my first watery photo today from an old mining district south of Dalarna in Sweden.

I'm kind of confused. People are posting for the Nov. 10th entry. Is there no new one for this week?

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I can hardly believe there are over 100 entries this week. Wow! Uh, oh, now I see that it's this week's and last week's also. I missed last week so I didn't notice.

I've never seen a flamingo up close like that. I had no idea their feathers were varied shades like that, like a peony flower or something. So lovely. Thank you for a great photo duo.

kat-iTravel said...

This is my first time to join this meme and i can't believe it, im on a 110 participants for this week meme. Well, congrats to the host.

Cher said...

Perry said...

Yes, happy Watery Wednesday! Here is mine for November 17/18......http://perry-myworld.blogspot.com/

Lovely flamingo, people say they are pink because they eat shrimp( prawns) but I cannot see how this is since shrimp or prawns are only pink when they are cooked otherwize they are grey.

you can check my entry for the 17th here
