martin harvey photographs huge flocks of flamingos - up to 1.5 million - conforming to the shoreline of lake borgoria in kenya, which they do in order to enclose and feed on the abundant blue green algae which thrive in the lake’s warm alkaline waters.

"despite their apparent large numbers, flamingo are a threatened species due to their very specific feeding and breeding requirements," harvey notes. "as conservationists, we can only try to get people aware of this truly incredible species and hope to put pressure on governments to protect their habitat."  video
