Black flamingo

Thursday, January 5, 2012



 A total U turn from my usual posts featuring chunky and ornate earrings. You can catch me wearing something like this on an usual day as this is more REAL me. Well, I don't own these earrings, this is a gift to my darlings B and S. I picked this cute black flamingo earring from MAX.  It's light weight and something totally wearable.





I went ahead an googled  picture of a flamingo. See, it's legs?Exact ditto as that of the black Flamingo's legs. 

 

Little research and look what I found 

"Flamingos often stand on one leg, the other tucked beneath the body. The reason for this behavior is not fully understood. Some suggest that the flamingo, like some other animals, has the ability to have half of its body go into a state of sleep, and when one side is rested, the flamingo will swap legs and then let the other half sleep, but this has not been proven.Recent research has indicated that standing on one leg may allow the birds to conserve more body heat, given that they spend a significant amount of time wading in cold water. As well as standing in the water, flamingos may stamp their webbed feet in the mud to stir up food from the bottom." -Source:Wiki


 I  even  bought this cute elephant charm for B. I adore MAX accessory line but, little pricey I guess as I can get almost similar stuff and reduced price in other shops.
