Wordless Wednesday: Birds of a Feather


Nearly wordless: Sammy has always had that English rose thing going with her cheeks. When she's tired or overstimulated, her cheeks begin to redden. South African penguins have a pink patch above the eye which is a sweat gland. The darker it gets, the hotter the penguin feels. Birds of a feather!

She's very pretty. I think the pink cheeks are a bonus. I need blush just to keep from looking ghoulish.

Now where's a picture of mommy?

What a cute explanation. Your daughter is so cute! And, I love penguins! I get VERY red in the face when I am overheated, as I do not sweat...weird, I know!

Cute pic:)

The question is... did she get to PET the penguin? If I petted a penguin I would definitely become overstimulated and probably die of joy. (I love penguins!)

Becca said...

Never knew there was such a bird. Don't you love those English rose spots? I've always thought they're very attractive.

Molly said...
