Last week I had a day off and take the time to get a nice picture of some wild Flamingo’s here in the Netherlands. They are are for a few weeks allready but I had no time to go there.

So I started early that morning, it’s a 1.5 hr ride, because I wanted to be there with the rising sun. It was very cold but a almost clear sky. So the sun must be visible early and yes it was. Besides the cold it was a beautyfull morning. So here are some of the pictures I took.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

I live in the Netherlands near the German border. I'm working at a IT company in the Netherlands and in my rare sparetime a like to photograph. Mostly Nature and Wildlife, but also landscape. Beside I do some sports- and weddingshoots. Like to do macro the best, because it shows you things you could not imagine that it exists. I also have a weblog (Dutch, but pictures say more then words) on: http://natuurlijkwild.blogspot.nl/

Nice photos. I did not expect that Flamingo distribution extends so far north! Am yet to see them though in my native India. Hopefully sometime soon in Mumbai, India. 🙂

Hi Noushka,

You made me blush. Thanks for your response. I was also rather happy with these one. Thanks again.

Kind regards from Holland.

Goed gedaan, Tom!

Noushka, I agree – the colors are brilliant – I know that Flamingos are
quite common the in the south of France but I didn’t know that they come
as far north as Holland.

Tom, is this an exceptional situation or do they
come to Holland often?
