Camera Critters: Free The Flamingos

I parked my car behind K-Mart and was making my way toward the front when I heard ...

"hey, you there"
"get us out of here"



I know they look like they're looking toward me but really. Can plastic flamingos talk?

When I looked a second time ...



The ringleader was looking away. Crafty critter.

I had to do something!



There's going to be a lot of flamingos on my lawn this year.

Last year, our city's botanical gardens had a huge contest to dress the plastic flamingos...you should have seen all of them. These photos are super.

LOL! I have my eye on a set of silly looking chickens (and their chicks) for the yard. However, a pink flamingo will do!

I saw plenty of Flamingos this winter. I like them, they go about minding their own business, not bothered about anything else.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Cute! When I first moved to this neighborhood, I put plastic flamingos in my garden. One of the neighbors wondered about me for quite a while...

Rebecca said...

hee hee, my neighbor once bought a flock of flamingos such as these, painted them artfully and placed them around her yard. One day we came home and they had mysteriously migrated to our yard. It was a good laugh! You could really have some fun with this idea!

Krista said...
