Flamingoes, near home

The elegance of flamingos is one of the reasons I’ve started travelling to the Camargue, in France: french birds tend to be tamer than italian ones, that can’t be easily approached at a close range. Unless they are flying and you manage in being just under their flight path, a thing that I’ve just learned is not unlikely to happen during a boat trip at Diaccia Botrona, just a few kilometres off my summer residence.

Other photos in this session are available in the diary.
