"Sea of Pink" : Lesser Flamingos
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Shot from the helicopter in Mumbai it was a sea of pink! Thousands of lesser flamingos — those dainty, stork-like birds, with long legs, pink feathers and a distinctive crooked beak — were quietly sifting through the muddy waters of a creek at Sewri. They were a strange sight, against the backdrop of the oil refineries on the far side. From a distance these flamingos appeared to be a mass of randomly moving pink dots, in sharp contrast to the muddy brown marshy land.|
I am always very surprised for what makes them face into one direction only................ (All of them were facing West).
The shot is dedicated to my friend Asbed Iskedjian "Celtick-Ranger".
