Flamingos have been a favorite yard decor item for many years. They add a whimsical and festive addition to a yard or garden. This metal flamingo has a good amount of detail in the paint and metal sculpture. He stands 25 inches tall which is a great size for a small flower patch or up against a shrub. There is a small loop behind the feet that can be used to secure to the ground with a stake (not included). The flamingo will free stand on a hard surface but should be secured to avoid falling over in a strong wind. This sculpture would also be a nice addition to a large patio pot.
