Facts about the flamingo (taken from thejunglestore.com)
Flamingo, a large wading bird, lives in big, shallow lakes, lagoons, mangrove swamps, tidal flats, and on sandy islands above the low tide mark.
Grown flamingos have few natural predators.
- Flamingos live an average of 20 to 30 years.
Flamingos live in groups called colonies. They won’t nest unless there are other flamingos around. Both male and female flamingos mound up mud for a nest for their 1 egg and take turns incubating it. When chicks hatch, their down is gray or white. Once the chick is ready to leave the nest it joins a crèche like penguins

Hi Julie,

I really like the lighting in this, the textures in the feathers are nicely captured. Good choice of crop, and your pp work on the background is well done.

Warm regards,

Ciao Julie

WOW! The details in the feathers are amazing Julie! With the dark BG it REALLY stands out strong! Sharp, but not TOO sharp, I love the soft feel to this!

Wow! Is this a painting or a photograph? (After this you're not seeing my ordinary flamingo photo now!) The details are so crisp and sharp! Very good lighting. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

A lovely closeup capture from Flamingo pair with nice details, Julie!
The colors are so soothing and natural.
The sharpness and POV are excellent.
Well managed light and exposure.
Black frame suits very well to the overall scene.
Great job!
