Pink Flamingo by LackadaisicalCat
Pink Flamingo
It's been awhile since I've uploaded something here, well it's been awhile since I sat down and drew something.

Anyways...

Prismacolor color pencils on 11''x14'' bristol paper. Reference photo used is my own, took while I was at the Tulsa Zoo in Oklahoma.

:happybounce:Fun Fact:

The flamingo’s pink or reddish color comes from the rich sources of carotenoid pigments (like the pigments of carrots) in the algae and small crustaceans the birds eat. We eat carotenoids, too, whenever we munch on carrots, beets, and certain other veggies, but not enough to turn us orange! Caribbean flamingos, a subspecies of greater flamingo, are the brightest, showing their true colors of red, pink, or orange on their legs, bills, and faces.
