I always find Flamingo's really tough to shoot. The problem I have is always with their eyes. Can't seem to get it right. Anyway the "S" formed by the neck & head is really obvious. Shot @500mm focal length , hand-held with OS on.
Hope this does well. I don't dare to predict my score , I just hope it remains above my average.

Great S-shape. With the dark background the color of the bird just stands out. Good work!

beautiful classic shot - very very nice - I just don't know about the choice of the crop on the very tail of the bird - i wonder if a tighter crop may have seemed more natural...

Unusual, he looks more orange than pink! Excellent sharp focus and you caught him at just the right position/angle to make a perfect S. 8.
