Last of the Flamingos

It’s a rest stop for the migratory Greater Flamingos, in the wetlands lush with mangroves, along the lonely coastal highway of Ajman, UAE. They seem like last of the Flamingos. They look weary. They have landed from a faraway place. Their flock has to fly on their wings to Turkmenistan crossing Iran, and further North towards Kazakhstan.

They are mostly seen standing on one leg. And some say – it has the ability to have half of the body into sleep, standing on one leg. It swaps legs and makes other half sleep! (This is not scientifically proven.)
