“See how the sacred old flamingoes come,
Painting with shadow all the marble steps:
Aged and wise, they seek their wonted perches
Within the temple, devious walking, made
To wander by their melancholy minds.”
-William Butler Yeats quotes
My son’s class visited the Schönbrunn gardens and Zoo sometime and the flamingos surely were attractive not just to the kids but to us, moms and dads. 🙂
I have never seen a real flamingo, but I have never imagined them to be melancholic.
Oh…a terrific photo, great reflections!
Lovely!!! I’m a fan of flamingoes…and this is a lovely shot. Looks very much like a water color!
They’re very beautiful indeed. I love their color.
