Great reflection. Excellent composition and frame. Your subject is so unusual - I don't think I've ever seen a photo of sleeping flamingoes before.
I like your compositon too. I also like how all 3 birds are sleeping. we see lots of action shots so some sleeping shots are good too. Nice to see the Flamingos finally at the zoo. The enclosure was there last time I was up but not the birds.
I also like the reflections in the water. The curve of the concrete edging also looks great in the composition of the photo.

Sweety, this is a great photo. Great colours, sharpness excellent, a very nice composite and good note. TFS
Hi Puff, stunning capture. I think this is one of your best from the Zoo. True. Well composed, the 3 birds look so good there playing statues. The one of the right is not as sharp as the other two, but I don't care about that at all. The reflections in the water are superb. The details and colours are excellent, and I love your framing. Well done friend!

Love the composition with the trio and their reflection. Flamingos are interesting animals and their color is well shown. Much more natural than the bright pink so often shown. Wonderful! TFS :-)

Hi Puffy, this is a beautiful motive, I like the reflection of the sleeping flamingos.
A good contrast with the dark background.
Good POV and DOF, I can see so clear - all 3 are standing on only one leg - thats always funny. Thanks

This is a wonderful shot. Your composition is so nice. You've also done well with the exposure of the light bird on the dark background.

Beautifull composition Sweety! They look like ballet dancers. Fragile, with nice colours, POV and reflection in water. Great photo!

Hi Sweety, I have no time to write a decent comment. I give to you the well deserved smily.
The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.
It is the sower of all true science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty
which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms,
this knowledge, this feeling, is at the centre of true religiousness.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.

This is a lovely photo, Sweety.
Your patience paid off, and now we are able to also enjoy this pretty and interesting composition.
I like very much the soft gentle color of these flamingos with their strange one-legged pose.
Well done and thank you for sharing it with us.
