Flamingos in Namibia

I like looking at a big flock of flamingos.

Greater flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) breed at large, flooded shallow salt pans as well as coastal mudflats, inland dams, small ephemeral rivers, river mouths and sewage treatment works. Flocks of tens to tens of thousands, usually with lesser flamingos, are common.P1030376.MP4_snapshot_00.03_[2016.07.27_11.32.58]

The population is scattered in southern, central and northern Namibia.

Their long legs are especially adapted for wading in the water.

Both pictures were taken by my wife last month in Namibia, Africa.
