Flaming Flamingos

I am not an ornithologist. I do not know why these lovely birds are called 'The Lesser Flamingos'. They are one of the most exotic birds on this planet. They are generally seen in large flocks. With their bright colours they actually set the place on fire. A large flock in flight is an amazing sight specially if you have a chance to see them from air. I, as a helicopter pilot have been blessed with this opportunity many a times. God has actually been partial to these creatures in blessing them with so much grace and beauty. I, as an aviator, was once a part of an outfit which called itself 'The Flaming Flamingos'. I think this is a much more apt name and I am sure you will agree with me. Many artists have painted this subject and I am no exception.
