Pose

Since it is a scene that happens for a couple of months in Saudi Arabia (And Gulf region), I didn't want to miss it :)

 

Photographing Flamingos is fun more than I imagined.

 

It was so windy yesterday, I lost one of my contact lenses because of that, so I was almost half blind (was closing my right eye all the time in order to see well lol) and was using my left eye to look at them through the camera, which is something I am not used to.

    about the pic, it's very nice i really like to shoot flamingoes
    but I think the little green grass in front of the pic is somehow distracting, but ma bel yad 7ila, you can't change it : )

    Haha, I know how you feel! Whenever I lose a contact I fuh-reak out and it's a huge crisis!
    Now, do you know why one is grey and the other is a lovely pink? Is it like mood reflective? :P
    I heard once it was because of their diet, hmm but I dunno.
    Or maybe, maybe the pink one is male and the grey one is female (I say that because normally male animals have the brighter colors)
    Ah well, it looks so serene and peaceful there!

    thanks all for the comments :)

    EMi : well my first assumption was the gender difference yeah, but am not sure, I guess the younger ones are not colored, when they grow older they blossom or something lol

    Espraaaa : no the colors were not edited, this dude is a black & white flamingo :D but as I said maybe cuz it is a young one and you can see the size difference :)
