Pink, It's My Favorite Color

June, 2011Greater flamingos can be found in brackish lagoons here in the Galapagos Islands, feeding on their favorite meal...artesmia. This shrimp-like creature gives the flamingos their brilliant pink coloration.
I am always looking for calm water to catch the perfect reflection in. Here a tiny drop of water off the flamingos bill adds to the mirror image.
So graceful in the lagoons, but yet so awkward looking as they fly!
Imagine spending the better part of your life with your head upside down swinging your neck side to side in search of food. Wait a minute...
Greater flamingos add a perfect shade of pink to the blue water lagoons here on Rabida Island. To see more of my images please visit my website at
