|Greater Flamingo , Pink Flamingo|
Geographic range: South America, from central Peru to southern Argentina and Chile, including parts Bolivia, Paraguay, and southern Brazil
The flamingos live in lagoons, especially salt lakes, where there is lots of mud and water. The depth of the water is especially important. Some flamingos nest in the same nest every year; others probably don't.
Flamingos use their long legs to stir up mud. They then use their beaks to strain food out of the muddy mixture. They eat diatoms, seeds, blue-green algae, a few crustaceans, and molluscs. They feed during the day and the night.

Not quite as pink as the last one you showed us.
They dont seem to like showing the tip of their beaks do they ?
Love the title too, from the Edith Piaf chanson.
Beautiful in Pink! Great color and fine detail in this shot. They are amazing birds. I really like this frame filling composition. Nice shot.
What a frame here Radu! Looks like a giant! Great soft colours with beautiful black bg. Very interesting it has little eye indeed! Informative note also.
