The flamingo is my favorite animal, hands down. So you can imagine by ecstatic face when I spotted flocks and flocks of them in the sky recently.
Look how cheery they are with their bright pink color and their wacky, wiggly necks. Of course, I pulled over to take photos so I could share this happy scene. I think flamingos are a good reminder not to take life so seriously (and believe it or not, I need reminders like this). In a world in which much of nature is shades of green and brown, a cheerful pink anomaly is a squawk that halts me in my tracks, prompting me to laugh and to appreciate the fun things in life.
Have you hugged a flamingo today?
