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.
