I saw this arty photograph online and thought it was fantastic, pink flesh and pink flamingos juxtaposed to a blue dress and sky.
It also made me think of where I take my naturist holidays in Spain, because flamingos are in abundance there, using salt water lagoons near the resort of flying overhead on their way to Cabo de Gata National Park.
I’m not really a wildlife enthusiast, but it’s still beautiful to see a flock of these birds in the wild, or flying over, and I’ll certainly drag myself away from the beach for a bit every trip to go and watch them.
For me, being in nature is part and parcel of my broader naturism. And I’m not alone in that line of thinking. Many naturists will tell me that they’re not wildlife enthusiasts, or environmental warriors, and yet they will often stop what they’re doing to observe wildlife, or reflexively ensure they aren’t leaving plastic bottles on the beach and causing litter or a danger to wildlife. It’s almost subconscious at times. Naturists simply embrace a bit of care for the planet they inhabit.
Not flamingos, but French avatar Sandrine enjoys the company of some bird life.
