[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lesser Flamingo originally lives in Kenya,but this individual gave a wrong choice while migrating:)) And it had flew to the 5000 km north.(Just wrongly:)) It's now in Turkey's beautiful wetlands..

All of its big brothers have looked after this little,baby like Flamingo..;)

This adult is in breeding plumage.. Lesser Flamingo(Phoenicopterus minor) with Greater Flamingoes(P.ruber) in Eregli Marshes(Konya-Central Anatolia) still 12 April..

A digiscoping photo with Optolyth 20x fieldscope and Olympus D545..

Hi Emin !
This is a very beautiful photo, with great composition and very good colors, all these different tones of pink are really wonderful. The image could be a bit sharper, though, but still a great shot.

Wonderful shot of Lesser Flamingo . Well done.

Great note and although not so sharp, it is a good post. TFS

Hi Emin,
I can actually only agree with Tinman. But, I do want to add that I like the composition and the colors.

Hi Emin

A great shot. Very well composed, with good clarity, depth of colour and sharpness. Detail is spot on. A big tick for this shot! :-)
