Venice Flamingos

C Fi 9924

A cute reinterpretation of a Venice Magazine cover of Flamingos. Flamingo sightings are always an exciting occasion. The wading birds’ pink color (which comes from a diet heavy on shrimp) can’t help but grab your attention. Then there’s the fact they are often poised comfortably on one leg for reasons ornithologists have not definitively determined. Their lively chatter will make you want to join right in. It seems appropriate that a group of flamingos is called a flamboyance.
