Caption: Greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) in flight. The greater flamingo is a large wading bird which inhabits lakes and coastal waters in parts of Africa, Asia and South and Central America. It feeds by submerging its large bill in the water and filtering shrimp, plant matter and insects. Its pink colour is due to pigments in the shrimp that make up a large part of its diet. Photographed in a dune area near Walvis Bay, Namibia.
