Sadly Septimus will no longer be part of Squares, however he certainly wouldn’t have approved of being include in the theme odd! So instead how about more of those birds that I think we have all agreed are rather odd – flamingos!

Phoenicopterus roseus

The greater flamingo is the most widespread and largest species of all the flamingos. It is found in Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, and in southern Europe. Beauty like oddness is in the eyes of the beholder with these birds!

If you haven’t already joined us February is a month of Squares, and theme is odd. So basically nearly anything goes as odd includes odd numbers, odd balls, the exceptions, follies, and even odds and ends. Just remember to keep your photographs square and it would be great if you could use the tag SquareOdds. If you want to know more here’s my challenge poster.

      1. You are always so welcoming, Becky. I am usually reminded of your prompt when i see Cee’s addition to it and follow suit. Thank goodness for her blog. Without it I would have a hard time finding my way to all of the prompts. Then every time, I publish after forgetting to “square” my photo–so have to trash my post and post again after creating a square. You would think just once I’d do it right from the beginning. Guess it is all part of the process. ;o)

  1. Hi Becky B, Did your poor bird die? He certainly lives a twisted life. At any rater, here are my carousel pics. Not the best photos in the world, but it was odd that I found them. πŸ™‚ Have a great day. Hope you are having some beautiful, almost spring weather. πŸ™‚

      1. I’m glad to hear he’s ok. Yes, very odd! πŸ™‚ Animals can contort in ways we can’t even dream about in our best yoga form. My cats do it every day. πŸ™‚

      3. LOL That would be a riot. Like any of us ever could! I had a talk about that with Nutter Butter this morning. I bragged that I had thumbs and could pick up things even if I couldn’t put my leg behind my head and lick myself at the same time. (Not that I’d want to!!) He just kept licking and paid no attention to my thumbs.

    1. I can but not for the length of time they do. Nor at the angle. Check out the one on the right in my header – that angle was the angle it was at!!

      1. It really is, and very odd as usually they don’t stick around this long because of the number of humans walking past. However this flock seem to be coping with us all πŸ™‚

  2. Silly but my first thought when seeing the flamingo is – that is how I sorta looked putting on jeans or underwear standing on one foot then the other.
    (I used to do it with the grace and ease of a ballerina.) 😦
