Weekend Reflections

Today I´m joining some others at Newton Area Photo. James hosts a new meme called Weekend Reflections.

The rules are simple. This is what he wants us to do:

1)Post a reflection photograph.

2)After posting your Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky.

3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.

4)Comment on other Weekend Reflections participant’s blogs.

Feel free to be creative. Remember this meme is for any type of reflection. This meme runs Friday 11ish am EST through Sunday, so feel free to link your post anytime within that time frame. Join the fun!

These Kissing Flamingos are residents of the San Diego Zoo. Our family took a trip to Southern California last summer to celebrate my father-in-law's 90th birthday. The zoo is one of the places we had the pleasure to visit.

I love how the water is almost covered in pink from all of the flamingos in the pond. Even the foilage can be seen between the pink and the stick legs of the birds. To watch these magnificent creatures play is a treat not only for the eyes, but lifts the spirit, as well.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Great picture! I love flamingos, they look so elegant.

Very good picture. The colors are beautiful.

Though the reflection is very nice, what I like most are the attitudes, all those heads together! Looks like they are smooching!

Welcome to weekend reflections. Lots of fun. I don't think I've ever seen a live flamingo, only the fake ones on peoples lawns. Nice photo.

Flamingoes are so foreign to someone from Australia and their colours so like straight from a box-of-paints. Like many waders, they have fragile looking legs that I swear will snap with each stride. I love how the reflections simply fill the frame with pink.

Nice shot.

I like the San Diego Zoo, I like reflections and flamingos too.
So this is right up my alley.

There is just something about pink flamingos that I love. We even had one toddler last night dressed as a pink flamingo (too cute).

This is a great photo. Thanks.
