[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this 'Lesser Flamingo' (Phoeniconaias minor) at Marevale Bird Sanctuary.
Although early morning it was cloudy and got bit rain, but in the afternoon got sunset light. Beautiful sky with beautiful colour. We saw a floak of Lesser flamingoes flying and I captured so many pictures. Here is one where I found this bird alone in the frame.
Lessee Flamingo is found sub-saharan Africa and India. This species is smaller than Greater Flamingo.

Hello Srikumar,
I am disappointed that I have to view this awesome image on my iPhone. I took my computer in to get it worked on last week and it is still not finished. I can still tell that this is an incredible shot with gorgeous colors and nice detail. What a fantastic image!! I can't wait to view it on the big screen.

hello Srikumar
une magnifique photo en plein vol.
Les couleurs du ciel sont superbes.
Bonne journée

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of fantastic in flight Flamingo, fantastic colors, superba sky, perfect focus and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Sri,
Again, a once-in-a-lifetime capture. Not the first time from you. :-) What a composition, what a color gamut! Breathtaking, as Ori said, almost unreal. Magic photo. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Now that is really cool! How lucky can one get. The sky colors are amazing and the flight of the flamingo zipping past the cloud canvas makes this a super image. :)
