Flamingo Marionette

Flamingo Marionette - Kenyan Safari 2013
During my visit to Kenya in October/November 2013 the lakes of the Great Rift Valley had flooded. Lake Bogoria was no exception; the tarmac road, that ran the length of the shore, was sumberged and the trees that had grown on the banks rose like Mangroves from the lake. These new and unexpected obstacles had caught some Flamiongoes by surprise as they took off and came in to land. This image shows a Lesser Flamingo (Phoeniconaias minor) which hangs limp and lifeless like a discarded marionette barbed in the thorns of a tree.
