Camera Critters: Babies!



I've been visiting the Houston Zoo while the weather is cooperating --
not too hot or too cool.

My first stop is always the Chilean Flamingo habitat to see the flamingo chicks.




Chilean Flamingo

"When I grow up, I want to look just like you!"

"Hey, look at me! I can stand on one leg, too. Yoga, flamingo style."


Chilean Flamingo Chicks

"Come on in. The water is fine."

It is so exciting to see the flamingo chicks.
You can read more about the flamingo habitat and the changes that were made here.



Camera Critters

A big thank you to Misty for hosting Camera Critters each week.


Wishing all of YOU well and much joy.

The ltitle ones have a way to go yet, coth colour and size. But looks like they are getting the hang of the one leg trick already.

Oh my goodness, I don't think I've ever SEEN a flamingo baby. Not sure WHY this surprises me...I mean I should assume those flamingos I see at the zoo don't arrive full grown, right? haha. They are too cute!

These birds, adults and the little ones, look quite gangly with their long coloured-knee legs!

Oh that little guy on one leg...so cute! I don't know why flamingoes take such a bad rap...they are quite stunning!
