Greater Flamingo,

Flamingos get their brilliant pink coloration from carotenoids found in the tiny shrimp and mollusks they eat. In the absence of these carotenoids, flamingo feathers are quite pale, even white. This Greater Flamingo in the Galapagos archipelago eats a diet rich in carotenoid-containing organisms, but for a brief moment, its feathers appeared not pink, but blazingly orange -- a result of the setting sun's long, warming rays.

This is a limited edition photograph with a total of 500 photos printed across all sizes, as noted
