From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) is the most widespread species of the flamingo family. It is found in parts of Africa, southern Asia (coastal regions of Pakistan and India), and southern Europe (including Spain, Albania, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Italy and the Camargue region of France). Some populations are short distance migrants, and sightings north of the breeding range are relatively frequent; however, given the species' popularity in captivity, whether or not these are truly wild individuals is a matter of some debate. A single bird was seen on North Keeling Island (Cocos (Keeling) Islands) in 1988.

Hi Jiri
It is strange, for me, to see white flamingos.
I like the light and the contrast with the blurred bg.


Hello Jiri - We need a good hand to present a splendid picture, using a ordinary lens, which you have done here. Beautiful natural ambiance. Flamingos look very beautiful in their natural habitat. Thanks for sharing. Regards and have a nice day - Srikumar
