Love that pink tinge across the water. There must have been a huge number of flamingos, it looks almost like an island of them. Diane

Like WOW! What a view!

Almost too many to take in.
Are their numbers declining or is that just scaremongering?

Amazing paradise!

Springman said...

Numbers like this are barely conceivible. Fascinating as always JM. ;-)WBW

The fist picture is a dream where thousands of birds are happily foraging for food. The second shows reality of dead birds strewn about on a sulphuric lake. Spectacular photos!!!

Oh My Gosh. I can't believe how many flamingos are there. That's awesome! The panorama really does the scale and scope justice. They will love this over at World Bird just as much as I do. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the only picture from Lake Bogoria, Kenya!

Stunning wide angle. Great capture of the 'habitat' and habits of these birds.
