Flamingos look particularly grand in flight

Lesser Flamingo
Phoenicopterus minor
The photo above was taken by Tian Guangyu of Lesser Flamingos during their migration to Lake Bogoria, in the Great Rift Valley of western Kenya, in Africa.   While the Lesser Flamingo is not the most widespread in the world, it is the most numerous of the six Flamingos species in the world.   Some may think of the flamingo as slightly awkward, when standing, but it very grand and graceful in flight.
