Pretty Flamingo

A "Greater Flamingo" (Phoenicopterus roseus) at Lion Park, Jersey Gold. The traditional pink colour derives from their diet of shrimps. Captive birds are paler due to the lack of shrimp in their diet.

For Weekend Reflections.

Southampton Hotel

The sign on the front of this 1899 hotel says "Ask for Mary Ann".

See a closer view on my photoblog sithenah.

The reference is not to the landlady but the local brew.

I've been informed that "The States of Jersey have given planning permission to knock this building down and replace it with an office block".

For signs, signs.
