Hi dear TN friends

Thanks for your wellcome.

This is my second picture

I hope you like it

Flamingos or flamingoes are gregarious wading birds in the genus Phoenicopterus and family Phoenicopteridae. They are found in both the Western Hemisphere and Eastern Hemisphere, but are more numerous in the former. There are four species in the Americas while two exist in the Old World. Two species, the Andean and the James's Flamingo, are often placed in the genus Phoenicoparrus instead of Phoenicopterus

Hi Aires,
A very interesting composition here and i like this bundle here and the eye that looks lazing out but at the same time quite attentive of its environment. A very interesting pose and the colours just add to the beauty of the composition.The BG really sets off the subject very well.
TFS & Cheers

Hello Aires,

Beautiful capture of this flamingo. Very good sharpness. Very good light and colours. For the composition, I would have keep the bird in its whole. Very good contrast with the background.


Hello Aires,

This is a fine close-up with sharp fine details in the plumage!
Flamingos make the funniest poses and you captured one of them so well here...
Attractive colours, a pleasant composition!

Hello Aires,
Wonderful photo in very nice colours and an excellent composition. Beautiful colourlines.
Great sharpness and details. Good dark OOF BG.

Hello Aires
Firstly, welcome to TrekNature and secondly thank you for making me one of your favorites.
If you love nature TrekNature is a great place to be and learn about wildlife plant life and nature.

What caught my eye is the beautiful soft colour of the Flamingo. You've captured it so well against the dark green background. The Flamingo is giving you a nice stance with his head tucked into his body. Well done.
