MILLIONS OF FLAMINGOS
FLOCK TO KENYA
I recently photographed these magnificent birds in a zoo in Thailand. However, in Nairobi, Kenya, is a beautiful lake called Lake Nakuru. It is a National Park that is home to many wild animals including lions, rhinos, leopards, and giraffes.
But what makes this place unique is the flamingos. The sight is rather astounding. There are more flamingos here than any other area of the world. The lake is full of algae that is a great food option for these birds.
In this area of the world, the flamingo’s feathers are very bright due to the beta carotene found in the algae in the lake. Along with the very bright flamingos, they recently brought a rare White Rhino to this national park. They are on the verge of extinction, so this may be their last and only hope of continuing on with the species.

Clancy's comment: Stunning, eh? Oh, to be there with my cameras, but one can only imagine the noise of squabbling birds.
