15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
When watching a flock of flamingos by a small pond I was able to photograph this shy flamingo. He had isolated himself on the outside of the group to take a quick cat nap. He was standing motionless with his beak buried in his feathers. Hoping not to disturber him I quietly raised my camera to take a shot when he turned to make perfect eye contact with my camera.
