Feeding Time

I'm not sure if those are technically teeth, but they sure do look sharp.

In case anyone doesn't recognize what that is in the close-up above, here's a wider view. Actually, the color in the background might have given it away. This is how flamingos feed their young, the mother drips something called "crop milk" into the young one's mouth from from its beak. It doesn't look like milk at all, it's a dark reddish color. They can hold this position for quite a long time.

About me . . . When I'm not working I like to be out exploring and photographing. I do this blog just for fun, and to be able to share these images with friends. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
