OK so this was happening as I stood looking at the beautiful lake
full of Flamingos.
..at least they were not packed in with so many of them
was very difficult to isolate single or two birds...BlushBlush

Nature at it's best in France Standing with JenniBlush:

See V2

Thanks everyone for the comments yesterday
very much appreciated!

Two wonderful captures of these majoestic birds. Lillian. She's so embarrassed at being photographed in V.1 she's had to hide her head under the water Wink Carol

So many long legs to hamper proceedings but they seem to be managing! Smile I hope the female came up for a breather - she's probably pretending its not happening in front of the audience! Well captured action Lillian.

Not really sure that keeping your head down is good strategy, it kind of leaves you exposed elsewhere. But an unforgettable capture. A great image!

A very well captured intimate moment in V1 with the lady of the pair hiding her blushes underwater. Love the tangle of legs in V2.

Good luck Trev and get well soon!!!
