Photos of Flamingos as Numerous as the Sand on the Seashore

Millions of flamingos

Lake Bogoria in Kenya is home to one of the world’s largest populations of lesser flamingos. When conditions are right, the lake turns into an eye-dazzling spectacle, with over a million birds congregating to feed on the blue-green algae in the waters. Wildlife photographer Martin Harvey was able to witness, shoot, and film one such gathering, and calls it “truly one of the worlds greatest wildlife experiences left on earth.”
