Flamingo Wave

Flamingo Wave

Because this American Flamingo was so cooperative and stayed close to me for a long time I was able to start having fun timing the photos with the waves. The waves were really not that big at all, maybe 1 foot if that, but with the really low camera angle it seemed to exaggerate the size of the waves. I snagged this shot right when the top of a passing wave washed over the Flamingo. Taken at Bunche Beach Preserve near Fort Myers, Florida.
