Pink Flamingos

The Flamingo is one of the most stereotypically familiar birds, perceived as an iconic specialty bird from exotic locales.  

The American flamingo is something of a hoax. It is indigenous to the islands of the Caribbean, from Haiti to Turks Island.  All this is not to say that there are no Pink Flamingos in Florida.  In fact, you will find several groups of them in the marshy waters outside of Miami.  Generally, however, experts believe that these flamingos are on the lamb from zoos or the pet trade.  

Whether the flamingos I see so rarely in the Florida wild are actually escaped zoo birds hardly matters to me. I'll take my flamingos however I can get them and be thankful for the privilege of seeing and being able to paint them.
