Artist Comments: Flamingos are tropical birds that live in large flocks. Interestingly, they are born white, and nursed by both parents for about two months, with ‘milk’ produced in both parents upper digestive tracks. When the young begin to eat aquatic food, their plummage begins to transform, becoming ‘flaming’ red/orange in color.
