i chose this picture for this week's photo friday challenge because i find something breathtakingly beautiful and grand about how this bird spreads its magnificent wings. how it bows its pretty crowned head, how its legs seem to push those gorgeous wings up, open and away from the ground like a royal bow, for all to see.
one of my favourite shots taken at the singapore zoo. more to come soon.
i love that this week's photo friday challenge is 'pink". it's one of my favourite colors, and ties in well with the pink dolphin show we went to see last week with sis-in-law and nieces on our quick escape to singapore. more photos & about our trip later, but i'll end the post with this delightful question esra asked me at the show, "amirah, did someone paint the dolphins pink? they aren't really that color are they?" (apparently the dolpins are born grey and turn pink as they mature!)
