the flamingo tradition continues in 2019


Valentine’s Day 2019 has brought another flock (flamboyance) of flamingos to Lawrence Circle in the Schenectady Stockade. Below are a few noctural images taken before midnight on the 13th, and many more taken in daylight with some pretty blue sky and gauzy white clouds on Valentine’s Day 2019.
