Check out the video Jan took at the bottom of this post.
|Laguna Colorada. The rare James Flamingos live here|
off the pink and red algae. You are what you eat!
|Fly away ... OK, so this one landed like |
50 m away - same laguna, same food.
|So many flamingos - and one other |
bird in the foreground (click to
enlarge, as always!
|Flamingo in flight with perfect reflection.|
(Yeah - Inga got this one. Finally a bird in flight up close!)
|Vicuña! Wikipedia says they are a |
relative of the llama, and is believed to be
the wild ancestor of domesticated
alpacas. They seem to live on
nothing in this harsh environment.
Maybe they eat dirt?!
|One of the 80 or so bird species living |
at well above 4,000 m in the
Andes of Bolivia.
