Flamingo in KenyaLake Nakuru is famous for the huge numbers of flamingos — up to two million at a time — that gather here to feed on the blue-green algae which flourish in this alkaline lake (the pH can get as high as 10.5).

There were about half a million here the day I took this photo.

(From a 2002 trip to Kenya.)
