Photo: Flying Greater Flamingoes Plaine De La Camargue Provence France

Greater Flamingoes, proper name Phoenicopterus roseus, are flying through the air in formation above the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue in the Camargue region of Les Bouches du Rhone in Provence, France.

Greater Flamingoes, whose proper name is Phoenicopterus rosues, fly high in the sky above the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue in the Plaine de la Camargue along the Bouches du Rhone, in Provence, France. These flamingoes are flying in formation, and they often travel in this manner.

This breed of flamingo are actually the most widespread of all flamingo species. They are found in many parts of the world, including Africa, Asia, and southern Europe, including France.

This species of flamingo is the largest of all the others, and it can grow to 150 cm tall and weigh 4 kg. As can be seen in the photograph, flamingoes are a pink colour, although some of them can be mostly white, but pink is what distinguishes them from many other birds.

... They are a social bird as they like to travel together and hang around in groups together on the land. They can be quite friendly until they are annoyed and then it's best to stay away from them.
