Flamingos


Everglades Wonder Garden in Bonita Springs has a bunch of flamingos.  The attendant told me that they are very long-lived.  These are 37 years old.  What is the correct name for "a bunch of flamingos"?  Why, a stand, a colony, a regiment or a flamboyance.  Bet you didn't know that.

Flamboyance fits perfectly for these astonishing bird.

I think flamboyance seems the most appropriate.

Love the name "flamboyance" for a group of flamingos. Colorful shots.

I love that word flamboyance! I never would have guessed that these beauties lived to be so old, Jack!

Yes, flamboyance sounds right. These are a fabulous colour. They always strike me as quite unlikely birds, much as giraffes do in the animal kingdom.

You mean these things are real and come with feathers? I thought they were only found as plastic lawn ornaments! Will wonders never cease? ;-) Great shots!
