Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge (Day 4)

Thank you to El from FAR OUT IN AFRICA and Lori of  Let There be Peace on Earth for inviting me to join in. If you haven’t already, do give visit their blogs.

“The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.”

I would like to nominate Loreen of little learner‘s blog to join in the fun.

Just 90 minutes from Cape Town, on Route 27, is a  little village, Velddrif which lies at the mouth of the Berg River. It is popular for its fishing, bird life and wild flowers. At the Velddrif Bridge is always flocks of flamingos and pelicans who use it as a base.

The distinctive pink flamingo color develops thanks to their selective diet, which primarily consists of organisms — such as shrimp and algae — high in pigments called carotenoids. These carotenoids are the same pigments that cause shrimp to turn from gray to pink when we boil them!
