Judy, Laura, Jack, Kimberly, Mette & Piotr - You know luck came into play on the flamingo shot. Sara & I shot probably over 40 images between us at Miami Dade Metro Zoo where the flamingos congregate. When viewing, and deleting, that evening this one image stood out for its crispness and the wonderful blurred colored background effect. We did not know either that flamingos had ridges in their beaks. It's one of my favorite captures as I seem to favor now the ultra close ups when we go out. Thank you all for your support and kind words of praise! Dick #1282267

A wading bird, the flamingo feeds by straining water through special filtering plates (lamallae) along the inside of its bill, thus trapping its food (similar to a balleen whale, which filters its food/water intake). Shot at Miami-Dade Metro Zoo, Miami, Florida.
