A Great Greater Flamingo

It’s the evening and a single young Greater Flamingo Phoenicopterus roseus is doing its thing in the lake.

It’s beautiful, ungainly, magical, and quite spectacular to watch in the still warm air. That rigid walk, those stiff legs. that s-bend neck and that strange bill are fascinating to see.

It’s strange and beautiful at the same time.
