En Camargue 1

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 24 September 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Un flamant rose en phase de décollage devant les remparts de la ville d'Aigues-Mortes (à cause de son poids et de sa taille ,il doit courir pour avoir assez de vitesse pour s'envoler !)
un des très nombreux étangs où l'eau douce se mélange plus ou moins à l'eau salée

Taking-off of a pink flamingo in front of the ramparts of the city of Aigues-Mortes (because of his weight and of his size, he has to run to have enough speed to fly away!)
One of the very numerous ponds where the fresh water mixes more or less in the salt water
Camargue is the delta of the Rhône river in the South of France

CORPORATION 1/800 second F/6.3 ISO 160 300 mm

Cette photo de l'envol est très réussie. Je me demande toujours comment de si gros oiseaux peuvent voler.

They look so elegant on the ground, but kind of awkward in flight here.

Magnifique une très bonne photo de l'envol du flamant rose, on a l'impression qu'il court sur l'eau.
Passe une bonne soirée.
