Flamingoes in the Silhouette
Lesser flamingoes are the smallest species of flamingo family, these are tall and largish birds by most standards.These flamingoes were spotted at a lake in the outskirts of Hyderabad . Though I have been birding from last few years I had never gotten an opportunity to photograph these beautiful birds .
This picture was shot early morning when we were setting up our camera equipment , I was lucky to have held my camera when a flock of flamingoes flew right in front of the rising sun giving a silhouette effect .
