Very cool compo. All heads up, were they alert or just behaviour?

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Shankar, interestingly we could see some 20-30 flamingos forming a team, and then marched all around the place with their head held high, the heads were turning right and left continuously, there feet movement was in a marching pattern. Praveen and me initially thought that they formed a team to dig up the ground to bring the algae and other microbes they feed on to the surface. Later, I heard this was like a mating ritual march. They often spread their wings straight while standing and what a lovely scene that was. Praveen has a lovely frame like that. It was a life time experience :-). Very nice image Praveen.

Excellent one! Love the way it is framed.
Yes, the behavior is the mating ritual. It is filmed fantastically in the Planet Earth series of BBC. It must have been a wonderful experience to witness the event on the field.

A non trivial composition here Praveen. I think color too would be impressive - it may even standout better ?
