This beautiful bird, as photographed by William Warby, is a Pink Flamingo residing in England. The bird gets its color by eating foods high in beta carotene, which can be found in certain algae and prawns. They have 16 bones in their long necks, and they often stand on one leg in shallow water. It's not only comfortable for them, but it also greatly reduces the amount of body heat that is lost to the cool water.
