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.
