Oppps!

By Lillian  
Guess more on the way..for my next visit in April
His wings were flapping...so movement...of coarse

Taken in France in the Carmargue...just one of those moments
in right place at right time..or maybe not

Still busy making the Sweden book but fun so will have do
show more from there soon as hard drive is really being liberated!!

Enjoy your weekend
Sorry but under general the slider won't work!!!

He's gorgeous. I heard their colour comes from eating shrimp. Is this true?

I bet that's what Mr. Flamingo was thinking.

Spot-on timing, Lillian, and fabulous clarity, colour and exposure too!

She's so embarrassed at being photographed in such an uncompromising situation, Lillian, that she has had to hide her face in the water Wink Carol
