My friend Judy and I went to Jungle Gardens on Mothers Day as a special treat to ourselves.
I love Flamingo Faces
I love Flamingo Feet
I love the fact they can stand for hours on one leg looking like a cotton candy pretzel
Look, my Chatty Cathy self said to Judy, It's breeding season!
( as though Judy can't read the signs all by herself.)
Look, Judy the sign says nesting area! where is it? I don't see it!
Judy, come back, stop snapping shots of that dead tree and COME LOOK! I found the NEST
The nests were way up under a hibiscus and there were 6 of them, piles of very wet MUD, they have water running to keep it muddy for them
LOOK, Judy Look! she is digging in the nest. (I think i said that about 6 times)
Well, Judy came running and grabbed this amazing shot above.
This was the most amazing mothers day for both of us, the mother scratched in the mud, turned around and sat down and started to SQUAWK! then several ducks walk over and started QUACKING! 3 more Flamingo's came and circled her and they All Squawked and Quacked!!! LOUD and she laid her egg in the nest, WHILE WE WATCHED
God's Amazing Creation, right in front of our eyes.
