A Chilean flamingo takes flight over Laguna Puilar at Parque Laguna Chaxa salt flats, near San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. It is one of three species if flamingoes that bottom feed at the lake, and migrate between the slat flats of Chile and Bolivia. The numbers have been in decline because of the destruction of their habitats, due to industrial salt production at the Atacama desert flats. A Nikkor 200-500 zoom was used.
