American Flamingo
Location: National Zoo, Washington DC
Flamingos are monogamous birds that lay only a single egg each year. If that egg is lost or damaged, they do not typically lay a replacement. It was challenging task to isolate a single bird from the flock at the National Zoo, Washington DC. With some luck and lots of patience, I could capture her carefully removing small stones and dusts from the nest, securing her egg with so much care.
