in the mist


Watching this beautiful flamingo in the mist, under the bright light of a full moon rising, is a memory from Crater Lake we won't soon forget. We've seen lions, giraffe and a whole host of other amazing wildlife here, but flamingos will always be my favourite.

These birds are stunning in all their awkwardness, with their knobbly knees, large nose and big bum. They remind me of awkward teenage girls going through adolescence - limbs too long, pimpled faces, feeling ever so self conscious - not aware of how truly lovely they really are.
