"Flamingos" : Artwork by Eric Christopher Jackson

During my second trip to the Jacksonville Zoo, I captured a much better view of the flamingos. For some odd reason, the sunlight focused intensely on one while casting a softer light on the rest. I tried to balance the distribution of the light in editing without making the scene look too strange.

I love the color of flamingos. I guess they are my favorite type of bird because of this. Have you ever listened to a flock of flamingos before? Oh my goodness. I must admit, it’s an awful sound to me. They are loud and seem quite cranky when they don’t want you around. During my first trip, they stayed too far away from me to get a shot like this. I caught them on a good day. 🙂
