One of the three species of Flamingos living on the lagoons of the Bolivian altiplano. I think this is a James's Flamingo (Phoenicopterus jamesi)

Hello Alex,
Good work! The altiplano where the Andes are at their widest:-)
Excellent lighting and colours. Well composed.
Extraordinary flamingo. Maybe you have the other two species as well...

Hello Alex,
I think you are right, a James's Flamingo. Very special! The best photo of this species I've seen so far. A pity that it's turning its head off. Beautiful clear colours and good sharpness. Great reflection in the water.

I like the color and pose of your flamingo very much, Alex. The reflection makes the image special. Sharpness and exposure are good.

Hola Alex

nice capture and with a great composition, showing the reflex of the Flamingo in a blur way..
awesome colors of the bird's body and good sharpness.
I like the reflex that show besides yet the blue sky and almost clean water.
