Artzoobilee: Fleming

I was a little surprised that, as fragile as this flamingo was, he was not cordoned off the way Fancy Bird (the ostrich) was.

A close-up of his mosaic tiles:

You know if those "friends" weren't stuffed, they'd be scary.

I like the mosaic tiles on this one.

Yeah, it surprised me that--for such a girly girl--the stuffed animal The Bug wanted from the gift shop that day was a snake. Of course, it is pink. LOL

And she's using it like a feather boa.

Heather said...

Yup. That's my girl, LOL!

Jana said...

Pretty. He does look super fragile, though.

Heather said...

Yes, he was, and I did see a couple of kids hanging around his neck. I kept cringing and waiting for it to snap--and I *did* say something to parents and kids and point out the sign saying NOT to do so when I was close enough. Literacy is soooo overrated, you know. :-\
