Flamboyance features a Lesser Flamingo which is found in Sub-Saharan Africa and India. What I find so striking about this species of flamingo is the bright yellow eyes surrounded by red feathers, and their generally bright pink coat of which the vibrance depends upon their diet. They aren't born with this coloring but achieve it in adulthood from eating different types of algae containing carotenoids. He is the smallest flamingo in the family but also the most numerous. Lesser and Greater flamingos have been known to flock together in the hundreds of thousands. And here's the best part, a flock of flamingos is called a "Flamboyance" of Flamingos! How perfect is that?
