I haven’t checked out the link yet but seeing this brought a smile first thing. Weird fact #whatever about me is I like flamingos! An interesting thing about them is that they get their color from what they eat (so I’ve read). Good photos!
The weird facts told me things I sure had no idea about. I like the fact that the bird’s leg appears to bend backward at the knee; however, that is the bird’s ankle. Its knee is actually up high on the leg and covered by feathers.
