A Gathering of Pink

Most of the Chilean Flamingos were fast asleep when I took this photograph, apart from this one particular bird.

What did this image teach me?

In researching the Chilean Flamingo I discovered not 1 but 2 interesting facts… firstly, the word flamingo is derived from the Portugese for “red goose”, and secondly the collective term for these extravagant birds is: a flamboyance of flamingos. Seems very appropriate to me.
