Against the Odds…

The Daily Post, weekly photo challenge, is to share the unexpected.

The most recent unexpected event I could think of was our visit to Celestun, Yucatan to see real live flamingos. Not flamingos that stand around in a pond at the zoo…but real live flamingos, in the wild, in their own habitat, with their families and their friends…NOT surrounded by screaming children with nowhere to go and nowhere to fly. img_5757

Fortunately, for the flamingos, the boat we hired  was only allowed to get within a certain distance. Unfortunately for my photography we couldn’t get closer. img_5635

I could have watched these pink creatures all day. Tina and I both have a long standing love for these unique creatures. So having the opportunity to see hundreds of them at one time was a dream come true. img_5530
