Part TWO: Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Florida: (Otherwise known as "It's all about Flamingos!) !!

it is

I am dedicated this entire blogpost to the beautiful

There will be a lot more pictures posted about this wonderful
park, but today, I had to devote the entire post to these gorgeous birds.

Also today, I'm going to be quiet
(I know! A near impossible feat!!)
and just let you gaze at the wonder of these birds:

An Ibis, a flamingo and a swan in one shot!! :

Forget those
Flamingo statues people put in their yards....

I want a REAL one for my yard this summer.


If he stays until winter in the U.P....
those long legs will be a HIT
to ice skate with!!!!!

You can be quiet but I know what you'd say so the comments are in there anyway.
Great photos! Thanks.

They are so incredibly beautiful...and the shot with all three birds is very special! Now, if you could only have gotten a pelican in there, too....

Sharon Wagner said...

I actually have 2 tacky pink flamingos in my studio. Ha! But I like the beautiful orangy/red ones in your photo better.

Nat said...

Such beautiful, vibrant birds! Never seen them that orange before...

Debbie Lo said...

I love their orangeness! I'd love one for our front yard too! Great photos, gal!

SquirrelQueen said...

Whatever these flamingos are eating let's give them some more, I love that brilliant orange color.

I'm catching up after a week of on/off (more off) internet connection. Hopefully it's fixed now, it seems to happen every few months.
