"I starred in Alice in Wonderland!"

Apparently flamingoes stand on one leg when they relax. Quite an odd thing to do really, surely it makes them more likely to fall over?

Stilty, very stilty smile

Well they also tuck in their heads when going to sleep one-legged. Strange but beautiful birds. Their colours also differ on account of their diet, which is mostly mini crustacians. Crustacians differ in colour from area to area based on what they eat - and so do the flamingoes.
Lol smile I'm going to try to have a rest on one leg and then I'll phone from hospital smile
