Bezzie catching up here! (Even though for some reason I didn't sign up for this blog under than name...but whatever).

We went to the zoo today and I had a chance to do both Camera Shy and Flamingos!

First up camera shy. I cheated and had my husband take the picture:

That's a road that I think the San Antonio River flows over back behind the zoo. Don't be fooled, it's only six inches there in the middle. But if I had fallen off to the other side, well yeah that's pretty deep.

And I also give you not one but TWO types of flamingos!

First "normal" flamingos:

And then "lesser flamingos," they're a bit smaller and a different shade of pink but still pretty cool:

It's good to be a flamingo in Texas. Yesterday was 75 degrees and sunny. Today only about 60, but still sunny!

I would say it's good to be an anything in Texas! Right now it's -8C where I live! Very nifty pictures! No fair cheating. You were supposed to use the timer! *grin*

This after all that snow and ice? Or are you in a different part of Texas?

Very pretty birds. I still need to get a 'camera shy' photo/entry done.

The flamingos are pretty. I like the softer pink of the "lesser" birds.

I'm afraid if I were to "run" acroos those rocks the picture would have to be titled "Swimming".
