'It's cruel...but I'm weeping with laughter!' Planet Earth II viewers are left in stitches by pink flamingos falling through VERY thin ice
They may be one of nature's most regal creatures but the sight of a flock of pink flamingos struggling to stay upright on a just-frozen lake left viewers of last night's Planet Earth II in fits of laughter.
The pink-hued birds, filmed in the Andes for the hit BBC nature series, looked surprisingly slapstick as they tried to negotiate their way across very thin ice.
Armchair naturalists couldn't hide their mirth at the hilarious - and relentless - footage of the hapless birds crashing into the water, or skidding at high speed.
