I can't believe how many great flamingo photos everyone is posting!! What a beautiful collection!
I wanted to warn you all that due to a trip to Europe, this month's contest will be ending on May 28, instead of the usual last day of the month. Please get all your awesome flamingo pictures posted by May 28 and I'll make the VERY difficult decision about this month's winner that night!

Our flamingos travel in cozies so they are nice and comfortable traveling down the highway. They get pretty excited to get out and explore the campsite.

It was my incredible good fortune to be in the right place at the right time and be able to capture exceptionally rare photos of the highly elusive "Black Bodied Northern Flamingo" while we were in Custer State Park a few years back ......

Many serious birders will finish their lives out without having been able to add this kind of sighting to their Lifetime Checklist .....

Airstreaming just doesn't get any better .....

I too have seen the BBFN as we call them in New England. Annually. Every November. I am indeed a fortunate man.

Rasta-flamingo...

Not sure where my wife found this, but buying it was an easy call... It took courage to walk into commercial welding shop when one of the tack-welded legs fell off, but after they all stopped laughing I got a discount on the repair...

May Contest Winner

Hi all you flamingo lovers (not to mention fine photographers),
What a great group of photos this month! All of them were so cool, with a wide variety of themes. After a lot of thought, this month's winner is Rumship. A couple of reasons: one is that the first one they submitted is not only a funny juxtaposition of flamingos, snow, and trailer, but came with such a touching story...your dad would be proud to be responsible for winning such a respectable and high-class photo contest! The second reason is that a couple of my other favorites were also submitted by Rumship: the pool pic and the stained glass.
Honorable mention goes to Monah's pool shot, Robert Cross's flamingos napping in the field, AIR-aquarius's airbrushed birds, and NilesRob's Travels with CHarlie (one of my favorite books!). I also liked the welder story and the story of the rare "black" flamingoes
Thanks all of you for such fun and interesting photos and great stories! Will be tuning in to next month's contest after I return from Sweden...
B girl

Thank you so much. I'm working on a few ideas for next months topic. I've looked back through the past years ideas so I hope I don't pick something everyone have done to recently. I'll post a new thread on Friday for June. Thanks again.
