I took this capture at the San Diego Zoo. I have always wanted to capture flamingos because of their interesting body shape but they are a bit difficult to frame properly due to their size and the fact that they rarely stay still. But this time I waited patiently hiding and as people started to thin out the birds kind of relaxed and started moving around and this one gave me a perfect framing opportunity which lasted for maybe couple of seconds...
