Flamingo are found by the million in Kenya. The lake's abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. The lake's level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s but has since largely recovered. In 2013, the lake received an alarming increase in the water levels that led to the migration of flamingos to Lake Bogoria in search for food supply.

My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an Architect hailing from Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country, I was raised in Bangalore and now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography which is my passion but not my profession. The big cats have always been my favorite subject for photography. To me there is nothing called "perfection" in any photography, every click to me is an experience, the more I click the more I learn something new. I give more importance to quality than clicking pictures in quantity.
