Graceful as a Flamingo?: WPC

You’ve probably heard the expression, “graceful as a swan.” Perhaps even “graceful as a gazelle.” But you’ve probably never heard anyone say, “graceful as a flamingo.” Okay, okay, their legs are a bit lanky and they are kind of out of proportion. Still, look at their necks: they’re just as long and graceful as a swan’s neck. Not to mention it’s more impressive that they can reach the water so¬†elegantly when they are kind of like swans on stilts.

So for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, “graceful”, I give you flamingos.
