[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another one of the series of pictures taken near a pond at the Gramby Zoo in Quebec, Canada. The flamingo was in a very strange posture that I felt would be interesting to memorise in a picture.
I had to face the challenge of having the sun giving backlight rather than being on the other direction.

I waqs too far to use a fill in flash, so I had to count on a good aperture to find the right balance in the lighting between the foreground and the background

Good DOF and POV. Nice OOF BG. The subject is in a very unusual pose and you handled the lighting very well. Good work
