We visited Sea World to see the sea life but the Flamingos
provided their own little show. Too funny how their feathers get ruffled when they fight (top left).
The "Alpha" bird posed and I took a step back. All stretched out they are quite big.
 This little flock of Chilean Flamingos gets to take a
daily constitutional through the park guided by to keepers who just walk behind them and guide them along so they don't stray off the path.
 And back to phantasy land. A few years ago Storm had been lost for 13 months and then suddenly appeared again. We do not know where he was all that time but there he was like stepping out from another dimension.

Sometimes you are able to capture a perfect pose. This crane stood still while I was getting my camera out of the bag and turned it on. As soon as I had a couple of pictures he hopped into the water and turned his back to me.

I love the so obvious attitude of the camels and the giraffe.
That giraffe, after posing, bent that long neck down and licked my hand. What a truly weird feeling that was, not like a puppy lick at all and that tongue is just so very long.

 The reflections in these 2 evening photos are spectacular. Plain black and white or sepia were fine but I like the blue mood.
The photos were taken by my friend Nicky on a trip to Guatemala.
Not all the same faith, but all beautiful buildings

Midnight Garden
 Sometimes it is great fun to get into something magical, even if it's only on paper.
So many bad things happening everywhere, it is wonderful to be able to not just create a little special place but let others have a peek.
A very surprised Birthday girl just discovered an unexpected guest. Such fun to see her reaction.
