Sofia Vergara is a woman of many talents. Not only does the bilingual beauty act, model and host TV shows, yesterday on Instagram, she showed her followers exactly how to climb onto a flamingo pool float—or any other “pool bird”—without getting wet. The Modern Family star didn’t even bother changing into a swimsuit, confident enough in her balance and flexibility to attempt the task in a strapless summer dress.

Girls..this is how u graciously get on your pool bird😂🐤#gettingreadyforsummer🌴🏝🌞

In a separate post, Vergara posted a Boomerang clip of herself waving from atop the inflatable flamingo—and she’s still totally dry. This is truly amazing. In the caption, she shared how excited she is about the warm, sunny weather Los Angeles is experiencing:

It feels like summer in LA!!!🌴🌞🏝

Earlier this week, Vergara talked to People about her next project: voicing the role of the flamenco dancer emoji in the The Emoji Movie. She told the magazine, “I thought it was going to be a perfect role for me because people are always saying that I look like her!” The computer-animated film, which also features Patrick Stewart as the voice of the poop emoji, naturally, is about the world inside a smartphone. It was only a matter of time. Since it’s animated, we won’t get to see Vergara herself in the movie, but another recent Instagram shows off her strong resemblance to her emoji character:

Excited to be Flamenco Dancer in @emojimovie 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻!!! #emojimovie
