Met this guy a while back while in Florida. He was hanging out with this flock and by the looks of his coloring he was not at all deficient in carotenoid pigments. Flamingos are generally a light pink to a bright red and their coloring comes from rich carotenoid pigments resources found in the algae and crustaceans they eat.
I was thinking ‘shocking pink’ for the Flamingo coloring, and there is a bit of that in the birds plumage, however these are looking pretty healthy and were more to the red side of the color wheel than pink. Never the less, I won’t be arguing with this guy! He demanded an audience and I am stepping aside to give it to him.
‘Yep, dude…you da’ man!’
