Flamingos in the Zoo

I spotted these beauties yesterday afternoon from the tram - and added them to my list of "must paints".  The best part of plein air is getting to spend time in nature with your subject!  These graceful, delicate birds made delightful noises as they chattered, and were constantly herded out of the water by the black necked swans.  As they walked up the hill a new boss met them - a large stork, who bullied them up to the fence, and then went back to primping and preening.  These birds all have so much personality!   I'm having so much fun painting at the zoo!  Painting number 2414 in 2414 days.
