EGST Challenge- Flying Flamingo!

The latest challenge of the team was inspired by this photo of a magnificent pink flamingo flying over snowy mountains in Eastern Greece:

Η τελευταια προκληση δημιουργιας της Ελληνικης ομαδας ηταν βασισμενη σ'αυτην την υπεροχη φωτογραφια ενος ροζ φλαμινγκο που συνελαβε ο φακος εν πτησει πανω απο την Ανατολικη Ελλαδα.

     I always thought of flamingos as delicate tropical birds, so Iwas rather surprised to find out that, not only does the flamingo reside and breed in Greece but it is also a truly hardy creature, having adapted to survive in some of the harshest habitats on Earth.
  The kind that lives in Greece is the Greater Flamingo which is the biggest of the species. It lives in various parts of the world, in tropical or subtropical climates, in shallow salt lakes or lagoons. Flamingos are social animals that live in colonies and when they mate they mate for life. Both parents take turns incubating the eggs and taking care of the young.

   Με εκπληξη μου εμαθα οτι τα υπεροχα αυτα πουλια κατοικουν στην Ελλαδα και οτι ειναι ιδιαιτερα ανθεκτικα πλασματα γιατι επιβιωνουν σε μερικα απο τα πιο αφιλοξενα μερη του πλανητη.
   Το ειδος φλαμινγκο που ζει στην Ελλαδα ονομαζεται Greater Flamingo και ειναι το μεγαλυτερο της οικογενειας. Ζει σε αλυκες και λιμνες σε διαφορα μερη της Γης. Τα φλαμινγκο ειναι κοινωνικα ζωα που ζουν σε αποικιες και οταν ζευγαροσουν ειναι δια βιου. Και οι δυο γονεις συμβαλλουν στο να εκκολαφθει το αυγο αλλα και στο μεγαλωμα του μικρου.
