Flamingos | Wingham Wildlife Park

Flamingos are amazing creatures native to  the Americas. Their name comes from the Portuguese or Spanish – flamengo meaning ‘flame coloured”.  Usually, they’re seen standing on one leg. We don’t really know why this is, but one of the most common theories is it’s to conserve body heat as they spend a lot of their day wading through cold water.

Pictures above were taken at Wingham Wildlife Park on a Nikon D3200
