The Photobombing Flamingo
This flamingo made me smile.
Perhaps a better photographer would have immediately visualized this photo. But I must confess that, coming upon the flamingo pond at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, my first instinct was to take clichéd shots of the birds. A group of flamingos, each standing on one leg. A flamingo, head down, feeding in the water.
As I busied myself photographing the birds in these familiar poses, one flamingo in the foreground kept thrusting his head up into the frame. He made me chuckle each time he did so — it was as if he was intentionally photobombing the pictures.
Eventually, it dawned on me that he was the more interesting subject.
