Flock of Flamingos Wade in Kazakhstan Lake

A large gathering of flamingos was spotted on Lake Karakol near Aktau, Kazakhstan, on March 3.

Drone footage shot by Azamat Sarsenbayev shows scores of the elegant pink birds wading in the shallow water. “I very often film these beautiful birds, and with the help of a drone, I learned how to control it so as not to frighten them,” wrote Sarsenbayev, as per Google Translate.

According to a Google Translation of a local news report, the flamingos often appear near Aktau during their migration. Credit: Azamat Sarsenbayev via Storyful
