finding some delightful happenings @ www.viralnova.com/flamingo-colony/
If you were flying over a body of water, looked down, and saw this, you probably wouldn’t know what to think. Until you either flew a little lower or got out some binoculars.
That’s exactly what happened over Lake Nakura in Kenya. When looking closer and closer, the reality of what was being seen was revealed. And it’s AWESOME.
What you might not know about flamingos is that sometimes they gather in colonies to sift for their favorite type of algae together in water. And sometimes there can be thousands or millions of these birds. Their sheer numbers will blow your mind.
And that’s what 1.5 million flamingos standing around together looks like.

"What is that huge pink object in the sky?
Is it a kite, a plane or even Superman in pink tights?"
"No no no.......
It's just the pink flamingos flying into your area to
take over your beaches.....then your ponds........then your rivers....
and who knows? They may even take over the world!!!"
What a magnificent bird!!!
So beautiful and elegant!
Thanks for sharing, Annie, have a lovely day.
Magnificent Zoom Shot

Magnificent zoom shot sequence; makes you feel like a bird diving into the flock from the sky! Colours, forms, shapes, textures. Love the last shot; subtle pastel colour changes and swirls in the water with the bold colour and strong shapes of the birds. Thankyou! xx
