Reno Flamingo

It took a bit of time to get this guy photographed. one must take care when photographing this large desert dwelling bird to not startle it.

I drive past this bird on a daily basis and it makes me laugh every time.
When I was taking the pictures yesterday I was asked by the management what I was doing and could they "help me"? I had forgotten that I had my id badge on from work and probably looked like a city employee out getting random photos of their "signage". Any way I just told them I was capturing the "artwork". She looked at my sideways and said okay....

So you can see just how big this bird is... those are second story windows.

It's pretty funny that someone would put that monstrosity on their front lawn and wonder why someone is stopping to look at it.

This is outside of a landscaping company's office. On the roof of the building is a giant guy pushing a lawn mower. I will have to upload that photo to my flickr site to share.
