Flamingo

By gary_d
Hopefully and fingers crossed my internet connection is sorted but I am not being to confident quite yet.

This was taken today at Slimbridge Wild Fowl Trust in the company of Glostopcat, it was bitterly cold but very enjoyable.

I am trying out the Canon 400mm F5.6 with the idea of trading in my Sigma.

It was difficult to get a good shot of one of these as they rarely leave the group but finally managed this one, taken hand held.

Thanks for looking.

Regards. - gary

A very creditable shot of the solo flamingo, bringing out good detail and colours in the plumage amd ripples. I have seen images that Ed took at Slimbridge previoulsy and they brought back memories of our visit there in the early 1960's when we were holidaying on a chicken farm in the village of South Marston in Wiltshire. However, I don't recall seeing flamingos then, but do recall the Hawaiian Geese which Sir Peter Scott was saving from virtual extinction.

Wow! Looks like someone has been eating a lot of those Shrimps! What a wonderful colour. Love the rings in the water and the partial reflection as well as the great image of the Flamingo itself.

Fantastic pin sharp detail and colouring in the feathers Gary, you must be tickled pink with the reception this one has received so far. Blue skies and glorious sunshine this morning, oh for weather like that yesterday!
