Greater Flamingo Phoenicopterus ruber

Walvis Bay, Namibia

Tuesday 24th / Wednesday 25th April 2007

  These Greater Flamingo’s were quite abundant at the right salt pans. We also saw a few Lesser Flamingos which were not as common in the areas we visited. Unfortunately these were too far for decent photos but both species were great to see none the less. Both juveniles and adults shown in images below.

  Photos taken with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 75-300mm Lens.
