This year the Flamingos postponed their arrival for a month affecting the "density of the arrivals". In one day the lagoon was empty, ..., next day a few hundreds a week later some thousands...!!! Welcome back!

Wow, 4 flying flamingo's! Good pic albeit not entirely in focus, but very well done anyway. I would have liked to see them a little bit closer though.

This is a beautiful image and the parallel lines have great impact.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

Very nice flight-in Panos.
Very good composition and colours.
Little soft but for panning with a 400mm is very good.
Very well done.

Hi Panos
I like the paning and the in-flight flaminos. The picture is in three identical width bands, creating an interesting affect. I considered cropping slightly off the top, to make it just a bit uneven, but it does not seem to really work.

Wonderful image!
I love unique moment on this photo!
Good job!

Very nice shot. I like the composition with the blur background.

Hi Panos, sorry I haven't noticed you before, but welcome. What a serious photographer you must be with all your equipment noted on your opening page!
Good action shot here with those beautiful birds flying together. Good compo and colours.
