"Lesser" in name only

Poor lesser flamingos, they're always ignored. They have cool fluorescent pink legs and maroon stripy beaks; more people should draw them! I think birds look so cute when they puff up and scratch their heads with their feet like cats. Watercolor, based on a sketch I did of a flamingo at the LA Zoo.

Ahh so cute! I like it when birds wag their tails like ducks do.. but that's pretty rare to catch.
