in the pink by dinghysailor1

Taken at Celestun in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula these flamingos are feeding in amazing numbers in a tidal estuary flanked by mangrove forests… tho there used to be even more until some recent hurricanes dispersed some of the breeding groups to elsewhere… more details here

Taken with a compact camera as I was not confident in taking my new dslr afloat on a boat trip yet! Pity tho – an opportunity well and truly missed!

And here is a shot of a mangrove pool in the nearby forest

Hi! I’m lucky enough to live in the beautiful Scottish Borders and love trying to capture a moment to savour…
Thanks so much for looking
