Photograph of the week: Flamingos at Molentargius Saline Regional Park, Sardinia

It’s not just the tourists that flock to Sardinia each year, leaving flushed by the summer sun. Large colonies of spectacular pink flamingos are now a regular sight along the lagoons of Molentargius Saline Regional Park in Cagliari where thousands come to nest and raises their young in the lagoons. Oristano on the west coast is another favoured gathering places for these elegant wading birds who can be seen feeding on the algae and crustaceans of the salt pans during the day before taking to the skies in a dazzling evening display.

    Great photo, I really recommend watching documentary about flamingos – The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos. It has great shots as well, and the music belongs to one of the best compositions I’ve heard;) Cheers!

    What a brilliant photograph. I’ve never seen flamingo’s in the wild, only at animal attractions, so this is definitely on my must-see list. They always look so delicate, and like they’re dancing when they move.

    Oh wow what a beautiful shot, I love the soft and colourful background, there are so many shades, from green, to orange, to yellow! I had no idea that there were flamingos in Sardinia to be honest, it would be wonderful to see them – such a great photo
