This canvas art shows a large flock of African flamingos in the shallow waters of a lake in their natural habitat. A warm coloured sunset casts a glow across the landscape and the flamingos reflections are clearly seen in the water. The name 'flamingo' originates from the Latin and Spanish word 'flamenco' which means fire. It is also a nod to the birds bright feather colour. New-born Flamingo chicks are gray or white in colour and it can take up to three years to reach their mature pink, orange or red plumage. Flamingos enjoy the safety and community of living in flocks, and whilst most flamingo flocks are only a few dozen in size, somflocks of up to a million or more have been recorded over the years – now that would be an incredible sight! Interestingly, a flock of flamingos is called a stand or a flamboyance. Whether you're a fan of wildlife or just the colour pink, this fine art canvas print will enhance any room and provide a great talking point.
