The Flamingos of Rann

Apart from the Wild Asses that are special to the Rann, the other species that makes a visit to the Rann every year are the Flamingos. Now, there are two types of Flamingos that come, the lesser flamingos which are seen in the Little Rann and the greater flamingos who prefer to stay at the Greater Rann.

One fine morning we had taken off into the Rann all by ourselves (We did have a GPS though). After an initial couple of hours of getting lost, we did manage to reach the creek where these beautiful birds were seen everyday. I spent a good two hours at the shoreline waiting for them to come closer. After the initial hesitance, they did ease out a bit and I was finally able to make some decent images.

You can see the images from the Gujarat trip over here.
