Shot late in the day at a visit to WWT, Slimbridge, one of my favourite places for photography. The flamingoes had just been shut up for the night in their shed but the raindrops from a shower were still on their feathers. I took this shot, and although it doesn\\\'t fill the frame, I liked it so thought I\\\'d give it a shot.

Not too much done to it, cropped, levels, sat and cloned a bit of distraction out of the background.
