Photo of a flamingoIf you've ever seen flamingos anywhere you'll appreciate how fascinating they are to observe. They are forever bunched up in a crowd, bobbing and swaying their heads, skimming their upside-down beaks across the surface of the water in a swaying motion, or scrapping for territory with their nearest neighbor.

All this fascinating behavior, however, makes them pretty hard to photograph. There's always a lot of movement and it's hard to get just one of the scrawny buggers in the frame at a time. Case in point here. I had to do some major blurring and masking to remove the distraction of the head of the second bird in the background.
