Two Flamingoes Study their Reflections

It's Flamingo Friday, started by Ron @stray_shooter and I'm so glad to have some images to play along. Thank you all for putting my last flamingos on TT! Given that I'm in Chicago watching a winter storm coming in, it's really fun to have flamingos to work with for posting today. This was taken at Lake Makati in the Serengeti in Tanzania. I've taken many shots there so that I could participate in Flamingo Friday throughout the winter.
A lovely shot - I always find them such peculiar birds - no emotion but just lovely to look at !! So goo to be working on photos of sun filled days while in the threat of a winter storm in Chicago ! fv

A spectacular FF image, Taffy. Very happy for you to get top billing on the TT list. Can't argue that!
January 18th, 2019  
@stray_shooter Very kind of you! I wouldn't have taken so many flamingos photos while we were on safari without your Flamingo Fridays. Even while photographing I was hoping to collect enough images to use throughout the year -- or at least for several months, so thanks for the inadvertent encouragement!

Wonderful images, Taffy! To have actually been in Africa and seen them in the wild is better than anything!
January 18th, 2019  
such graceful and elegant birds, and this image brings that out so beautifully
January 18th, 2019  
Wonderful capture for Flamingo Friday!
January 18th, 2019  
These must be real and I see from @taffy 's comment that you you really were here! fav
January 18th, 2019  
These are wonderful, the reflections, oh my! I look forward to your Flamingo Friday photos over the next months!

Stockpiling flamingos! Now that is truly planning ahead. I love this one! You have a great eye for composition and use of negative space.
January 19th, 2019  
Wow!!
January 19th, 2019  
Wonderful perspective. Does it seem like it was all a dream?
January 19th, 2019  
strange birds, great photo
January 19th, 2019  
@allie912 I'm sure you understand that it does (feel like a dream). Hard to believe all the animal activity that is going on there while I sit in my condo perusing 365 images!

I really like the reflections and the double flamingo image. So lovely.
January 19th, 2019

Beautiful. Fav.

Perfect squiggles. haha.

What a good idea, taking a whole heap to post on Fridays
January 19th, 2019  
Wonderful image, love it all. I've never seen a flamingo, so look forward to enjoying other people's photos.
January 19th, 2019  
Sorry, congrats on a well-deserved TT.
January 19th, 2019  
Another beautiful pic! Great composition. I've just noticed the flamingo's neck seems to have lots of bends or joints, not a smooth curve.

I wish the image was enlarged when we click on it like it used to be. Ctrl plus + does help a little.
January 19th, 2019  
Such a serene shot!
January 19th, 2019  
Fantastic shot! Perfect comp. Perfectly huge fave!
January 19th, 2019  
Stunning flamingo image Taffy! Another TT if I’m not mistaken! Such beautiful composition! Love it!
January 19th, 2019  
This is such a great composition, with those amazing reflections. Great submission for Flamingo Friday. I reckon that would also fit the monthly theme of thirds too.
January 19th, 2019  
stunning shot Taffy.
January 19th, 2019  
Beautiful, beautiful shot. Love the simplicity and the reflections.
January 19th, 2019  
Oh I can see this on the TT. You are giving Ron a run for his money. Fav
January 19th, 2019  
I like the repetition on this one. Such elegant birds, like long legged ballet dancers! Ha ha, I love what @onewing said! Look out, Ron.....
January 19th, 2019  
A stockpile of flamingos - excellent news for the future. This wonderful image just emphasizes how impossible their anatomy really is!! :)

Fantastic focus and capture...

Beautiful composition and reflections.
January 19th, 2019  
This is beautifully serene. I like the idea of you out there in Tanzania thinking about Flamingo Friday for months to come. I expect you could fill the whole year with your captures from this vacation - and they would all be winning shots.
January 19th, 2019  
Love those reflections... what a clear and beautiful shot.
January 19th, 2019  
Nicely composed!
