Flamingos for Fabulous Friday~080511


You know, I spend so much time up in the mountains, that I forget I actually do go to other places!  So, instead of posting more dark and dreary photos today, I decided to add some color for Fabulous Friday!  These flamingos are at the Desert Springs Marriott in Palm Desert.  This is a favorite spot for many local photographers.  I do my morning walks across the street at the city golf course, Desert Willow.  But, I'm always drawn to the birds and the beautiful palms that line their driveway across the street.  So, enjoy the color.  Did you know that flamingos have to be fed a special diet to get their beautiful, pink color?  That's one of the three babies in the bottom photo, standing on one leg.  There were 3 chicks last spring and they all survived.  Fabulous Friday for August 5, 2011.  To visit Fabulous Friday, please go to:  http://mcdougallphotography.blogspot.com/
