This past Sunday, I posted this photo of a plastic lawn flamingo floating in the creek near my house.

It was taken on a phone cam, and almost impossible to parse. [info]the_child and I went back later that day with the 300 mm lens and tried again.

Clearly, what we have here is a tragedy of epic proportions. I am desolated to see a flamingo in such a terrible plight. We can only speculate about the bad company he fell into, and how he was led into dissolute ways.
