Happy Valentine's Day


Wishing you another year of love, laughter, and joy.
We have out phone and internet service with Telus. Each year they send us a calendar with gorgeous photos of animals and birds. This was the one for February. I couldn't find a photo credit and I suspect these are computer generated images, rather than real photos. But they are cute.
I have like flamingos all my life, and a few years ago, I went to Rio Lagartos on the north coast of the Yucatan. It is a great gathering place for flamingos and other shore birds. The waters are shallow and warm and the food plentiful. In fact, the water was so shallow that our little tour boat got stuck. We all got out of the boat and pulled it out to deeper water. While there, we also saw a Roseate spoonbill suddenly stand tall and spread its wings. It was a spectacular, magical day. You can see more here http://www.riolagartos.com/

This is beautiful and perfect for Valentine's Day! I hope to do more work in building up my sketchbook, I'm hoping the Creative Every Day challenge will encourage me to do that! :)
