The Greater Flamingoes are found in Europe, and in parts of Asia and Africa. They fly great distances during the winters to take refuge in wetlands and coastal areas like Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. Thousands of greater flamingoes have been recorded in the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, and it is not surprising that they have become the main attraction amidst the sky-scraping facades in the back drop.
I had been photographing flamingos many times at different places around the UAE. However this specific visit in Oct 2007 was a perfect combination of tide levels and an interesting group of flamingos feeding nearby. This image is part of a series.
