Flamingoes in the grounds of the Whitgift School, Surrey, England.

I forgot to include this in my Weekly Photo Challenge: Green  gallery posted a few days ago. (Visit it here.)

Aren’t the birds gorgeous?

I went to the Whitgift School just south of London to see an exhibition of artifacts from the Mary Rose – a ship built for Henry VIII. It sank just off the English coast in controversial circumstances (which I’ll go into in a soon to be finished book chapter).

Imagine my surprise when I came upon these delightful creatures strolling around the grounds. They have quite a large area to themselves as the pictures show. Hope you like them!

    What a wonderful find! Beautiful shots as well, nicely framed and superb contrast, that exotic pink against English green.
