Happy Thursday everyone. First I would like to thank the hosts for the RE-INTRODUCE yourself bloghop.... you know who you are.... It was an amazing experience. I almost managed to get to everyone, but I needed to take a breath to post AND edit... LOL
I generally don't post on Thursday, but I didn't get the chance to post this yesterday. When I was coming back from a client's home on Tuesday I decided to walk through the Lincoln Park Zoo... I live just a few minutes away from there. The temps rose to an astounding 65 degrees! Now anyone who lives in the north will truly appreciate this... CHICAGO? 65 degrees? in JANUARY?! NEVER!
Although rainy and foggy, it was still warm... I happened by the pond area and a bright coral stunned my eyes.... Out, enjoying the weather were .... you will never guess .... FLAMINGOS ... I had NEVER scene them out in winter. WEll, here they are in their full color...
I hung with them for a while. What a cast of characters. If you ever get the chance to observe these creatures up close, make sure you do. They are so worth watching. Their wing span is amazing and features black under feathers. Nice contrast with the coral. The legs are hysterical. They almost defy gravity, you almost expect one to tip over at any moment.
They bicker and squawk at each other too. So funny.
WELCOME TO CHICAGO.
