Can't see your picture. But, WOW. Falmingos? Swingers? Ha ha ha
Yea , never heard that. People used to say it ment lots of things, swingers wasn't one of them. People here put flamingos everywere now. Its not unusual to see like 50 or so on a lawn, they call it flocking. People do it to raise money and prank there freinds.
I haven't programmed any flashing modes into mine since I don't like the jarring visual. This is like a Ford vs Chevy thing. Some campers vehemently HATE any lights on a camper. Other light it up all night. I light it up as I feel appropriate. But nothing animated after quiet hours for me. I may leave the "porch light" on if I'm coming back to the camper after quiet hours. The "Porch light" is just a small section over the door that I light dimly for late arrivals.
HAHA! Awesome. Thanks for the info guys. Keep those light pics coming!!!
well - I have not heard or seen the word "whimsy" used in many a moon - nice
Here's our setup at Algonquin Park, Canada ...
That weekend, one of the other campsites had a Christmas light projector - set to green - and pointing up into the trees.
Campers came running to see the "swarm of fireflies". Psych!
So flocking is the new swinging?? Lol
Edit to say I am half expecting a “Meet the Flockers” worked into this conversation!
I wish I could find some owls at a decent price as well...Anyway we have the old Coleman type lanterns with flickering red bulbs. Almost no usable light from them but it helps us find our camper at night after walking the dog. Only pic I have is with them on our old pup.

Sometimes you just need to get out and flock around.
im using the command hooks. i have micro / fairy leds along edge on front. they are on timer, which means they turn off after 6 hors hours & come back on same time every day.
You can see our tacky lights at the top of the pic.
Welcome back @Bullfrog Bheer!
I avoid outside lights for the sole purpose of keeping the bugs away! Or at least trying to keep them away.
A bug light (typically yellow) is used not to repel bugs, but to NOT attract them. Light seeking insects are more attracted to high frequency light (Green, Blue, violet). They can't see lower frequency light as well.
So if you have color change LED lights and set them to yellow, you might think that's great. But LEDs mix Red and Green to make what we see as yellow. Insects will still see the green and be attracted.
My porch light mode is yellow for my preferences. If I wanted a true "bug light" mode using LEDs, I'd have to use red.
No light whatsoever is great is great for not attracting bugs. Just remember that mosquitos don't care about light. They like warmth and our breath.
I've thought about using a few UV LEDs a distance away from my camper to actually draw them away. But I've never been anywhere where the insects were that big a problem.
This is what I'm hanging from my awning now.
We want to see tacky lights in action! Take pics of your rig with them on!
Used them for the first time this weekend. Next trip in 2 weeks.
What kind of controller? Thanks.
These are my party lights.
Thank you for being kind to the rest of us camping around you.
These non-glaring "Hey Look at ME!" lights are very adequate and do not glare through other "campers" windows and tents.
I'm sure you don't leave them on all night like the ME .. ME .. ME people.
Having the bright LED's on before 9pm, or during a late night trip to the Privy are absolutely OK.
