A cheeky flamingo has been caught on camera trying to steal a sun hat from a stunned tourist.

Holidaymaker, Bruna Gabriele Felisberto, was feeding the vibrant pink birds during a trip to Flamingo Island, on the picturesque Renaissance Island in Aruba.

The pretty brunette can be seen kneeling on the sand when one flamingo takes an unusual shine to her large black sun hat and begins pecking it.


Undeterred, Bruna continues feeding the flamingos and even manages to hold onto her hat.

The 31-year-old from Porto Alegre, in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, said: “The flamingos are part of the beach that is only accessible to adults.

They provide food to feed them and encourage you to take pictures but when I went to feed them they became more enthusiastic about my hat than the food.”
