Wow, It has been about two years since I visited the Adelaide Zoo!
My favourite animal to photograph is the Flamingo. They are a beautiful bird with a prestigious aura about them.
Since it is highly improbable that the aged pair of flamingo’s we have remaining will ever breed, one can only hope the Zoo will choose to import more of them before the children of South Australia start asking why we have none.
Yes, importing flamingo’s from the High Andes, Africa, the Caribbean, Galapagos Islands would be far too expensive – so why don’t we get them from the New Zealand Zoo?!
I’m looking for serious answers to this question. I’d love to read an investigated report on the issue, this is a subject that I’d find interesting to read and pursue. So if you know more, feel free to leave a comment below about the subject.
PostScript. It’s time to renew my annual membership and make enquiries. Even if I hit a dead-end, there’s no harm in finding out how, why and where we can get a few extra flamingos. Plus, with only two shots in my gallery of this unique birds, I really need to return to the Adelaide Zoo with my telephoto lens.
