Weekly Photo Challenge: Community (I)

A community or flamboyance of American Flamingoes at the Toronto Zoo, doing the one-legged tree pose on a hot summer day in July 2008. No amount of time on the Wii Balance Board would make it possible for me to achieve such Zen, and I’m particularly envious of those who can do it, and bury their heads backwards into their wings, too. Although having learned that it is done for homeostatic reasons, I’m wondering if they realize that they are under a blazing midday sun.

Flamingoes are pink because of their diet. I wonder if that would work for humans. I’ve always been amenable to the colour purple.
