Week 8 – D is for …. Dancing Flamingos

_NIK1044-Edit (1)

Flamingos, Sarasota Jungle Gardens

I caught these two flamingos dancing with their lovely long necks swaying in little loving nuzzles.  Standing among the Sarasota Jungle Garden’s flock of pink pandemonium was an exhilarating event of observation.

A little flamingo fact:  The backward bending “knee” of a flamingo’s leg is actually the bird’s ankle. The actual knee is very close to the body and is not visible through the bird’s plumage.  Our photo club is returning next month and I look forward to capturing these beauties once again!

Nikon D850 and edited in Lightroom with adjustment brush to create black background.  And that’s a wrap for 2019!

  1. They look to me like congress members squabbling about something trivial while a third hides its head. You should put some plastic flamingos in the yard in Maine.

    Seriously, beautiful photo and I look forward to seeing all your posts in the new year!
