This is my second post of this wonderfully colourful Caribbean Flamingo.

Taken at Whipsnade wildlife park, where about 30 of these colourful birds are displayed.
They share their enclosure with a variety of ducks and a few peafowl. The results of these shots, taken while the sun is out (yes.... Sun...England...Shining....) is very pleasing.

Thanks for looking

Excellent pose Alan! Details and colours are also great. I like contrast between pink feathers and black beak. Superb capture.

Hello Alan, very nice portrait, the colours and composition are excellent and a very nice pose. If I was to be really nit picky I'd say that there is the beginning of sharpening halo around the edges but it really isn't distracting, well done.

Beau et intéressant portrait pour ce superbe flamant aux très jolies couleurs. Bonne netteté.
Very Well Done !

Alan, Bold, bright and beautiful! I like the way you've composed this one..Green BG contrasts well - Great!!

Nice shot, great colours but maybe a bit too much USM. Good POV and framing.
Well done.
TFS.

What stunning colours and so sharp too. Perfect background to render the subject at it's best. Well done.
Toni

Not as good as the previous post of this species. Too much sunshine perhaps (LOL) :)
I think the face and some of theplumage is a bit overexposed.

WOW Alan, the colors are so vivid. Real sharp details and a nice compo. I find these birds difficult to compose correctly. Very well done. Great shot.

Simply, beautiful and well composed, Alan.
Congratulations, and thank you.
