Greater Flamingo With Wings Spread in the Galapagos Islands

The greater flamingo is native not just to the Galapagos Islands, but also to large parts of Asia, Africa, and Europe. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more iconic, instantly recognizable bird.

We photographed this one showing off its 60-inch wingspan. Although flamingos might flap their wings while they feed in brackish waters, they prefer to do their actual flying at night.
