I took this photo at the Akron Zoo during a visit with my granddaughters.  As long-time visitors to Life in the Bogs may or may not recall, I am a fan of the flamingo.  I like all birds, but the flamingo is one of my favorites.  (If one were to do a search of my blog for flamingo, one would like find a couple of posts about them.)

See how the sacred old flamingoes come,
Painting with shadow all the marble steps:
Aged and wise, they seek their wonted perches,
Within the temple, devious walking, made
To wander by their melancholy minds.

~ William Butler Yeats

I’m taking the day off from blogging today.  Just because.  I’ll be back live and in person tomorrow.  Maybe.  😀
