Might be smallest among the Flamingoes,but just the same a big bird and stalking big birds is getting more and more the way,as one gets older,Alok and Renu.The little birds move too fast,most of the time.Thanks for your nice comments always!

A very fine sight that Alok.... so lovely to see the next generation coming along so well - let's hope the future is not really that bleak for them though.

You've taken a super picture of this adult and child - very well done my friend.

A beautiful image of this parent and child Alok. Very sad to hear that their numbers are dwindling.

Outstanding capture! Those legs look so fragile, it amazes me how they can grow to adults.
