Flamingo preening itself in the Park in France

Thought better give you a break from the horses, But they will be back
So last night started on the birds, as we were right next door to a sanctuary
and we were told there were 2 million flamingos there or was that 3 million?...
a lot! and very noisy too. Spent a whole day there

What a day yesterday...no electric! I had letter while in France, and forgot about itBlush
Frozen through! no kettle! no phone, no TV and no internetSadSad

Thanks to Garrath, Robert and Phil for your User Award, much appreciated

and thank you all for stopping by

After staring at this beautiful image for several minutes it does feel like the tiny yellow beady eye watches my every move. The assortment of pink and powerful hues is simply stunning, whilst the elegance of the form is breathtaking Lillian.

We don't realise how lucky we are until we lose power at the flick of a switch, then more than the lights go out Lillian.
These wonderful Flamingoes wili make a nice break from the fantastic action of the wonderful white horses.
