[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
Las salinas de Cabo de Gata is the most important humid zone of the province. It is place of concentration of many animal species. Sometimes the population of pink flamingos can reach 2,400 copies.
They occupy a basin with a spit of several kilometers that separate it from the sea. Juncales and reedbeds predominate in its vegetation, facilitating the rest of the birds and the nesting of at least 80 species of birds.

Hello Goyo,
A pleasing image of these beautiful flamingoes. Is the water particularly saline? The colour is like that of a brine and I think they prefer saline water, but not sure. Very pleasant atmosphere that you convey here. A pleasure to view. Best wishes.

just after Brenda, it's another painting, is it? :)
hi Goyo, simply lovely! it's much more 'photography' than 'Nature'... creative... gives us a different taste of Nature-photography. wish the bill of the taller one could be clearly visible. the similar colour background has swallowed it.. never mind, it still has turned into a success.
