Flamingo!

Talk about bizarre birds … flamingos certainly are! Stick-thin legs, a massive beak, and that lovely pinkish colour!
Near Villa Simius, there’s a lake that has a nice population of wild flamingoes, so of course I couldn’t resist an early-morning walk with my 300 mm lens to capture some of these awkward, yet strangely graceful (in flight, at least!) birds
