Flamingo (Flamingoes or Flamingeeses)

Flamingo aren’t usually pictured swimming, they’re more likely to be seen standing on one leg, and nobody is too sure why they do that, but this is a lovely picture.  Sunset with flamingo (or flamingeeses)

Here’s my version of the lovely flamingo.  The legs presented a problem because they’re so skinny and bent.  I originally planned to do them with beads and earring components, but they wouldn’t kink like they should so I tried a bit of fabric and copper wire.

The fabric is that gorgeous hand-dyed cotton from Amafu.  I love it so much I don’t want to use it, I just want to look at it.
