Resting My Head On A Pink Feather Bed....

A gorgeous flamingo at Whipsnade Zoo.. It looked so comfy resting its head among the softness of its feathers...

 

Young flamingos hatch with greyish redish plumage but adults can range from light pink to bright red due to aqueous bacteria and beta carotene obtained from their food supply. a well-fed healthy flamingo is more vibrantly coloured.
