Photography : Birds : the Mimic

Flamingos feed, preen, and rest at the zoo in Santiago, Chile. These apparently delicate and decorative birds are amazingly hardy. Their skinny legs aren't bothered by the near-boiling caustic waters of the Rift Valley soda lakes in Africa or the frozen lakes of the Andes mountains in Chile. Their funny-looking bills are designed to filter algae and krill from the water.
