Flamingo Fight

I shot this one back in 2008.  The flamingo in the foreground came rushing up on the one in the background while he was foraging for food under the water.  Sort of an aquatic ambush.  Much squawking and flapping ensued.  I was bummed that I didn't get a video of the encounter because I found it truly fascinating behavior.
But when I was reviewing my pictures last week, I realized that these frenzied flamingos were flashing their fine feathers, and I hadn't totally failed after all.
