      Thank you AD.
      The new greater flamingo viewing hut at Slimbridge has a lowered floor level and is very close to the nesting area, so you have excellent views of the parents and chicks, virtually at eye-level. Excellent views should produce excellent photos. I chose this one because of the dribble of deep red crop milk running down the outside of the chick's beak.

      A lovely shot of these birds, against a wonderful complementary* background.

      *edit: I think I meant analogous, or probably monochromatic, rather than complementary! Anyway, looks great! :)
