There are six different species of Flamingo. This is a Chilean Flamingo, the pink colouring comes from the birds diet.

What a stunning colour, Steve, and perfectly cropped and presented. What exactly is in their diet that keeps their plumage this wonderful colour? Carol

An excellent capture here Steve, such lovely colour and detail.
Carol: I believe that they add some kind of shrimp mix in their diet to get this colour.

Carol's correct, their diet mainly consists of shrimp and crustaceans.
