Fine Filtered Friend...
by Dick Fortune
A wading bird, the flamingo feeds by straining water through special filtering plates (lamallae) along the inside of its bill, thus trapping its food (similar to a balleen whale, which filters its food/water intake). Shot at Miami-Dade Metro Zoo, Miami, Florida.
