Beauty, Grace, Elegance

I have always loved flamingos.....not just for their color.  Their long graceful necks....the soft, cotton candy look of their feathers.  Even the curve of their beak. 
Here is the sketch of a young flamingo.....he or she will soon be on my easel.

Most of us know that flamingos aren't naturally pink in color, that comes from the food they eat.  But did you know that doesn't start to happen until a flamingo is between one and three years of age.
