Migrating Flamingos Rest in Kazakhstan Lake

A flamboyance of migrating flamingos made a stop at Lake Karakol near Aktau, Kazakhstan, on March 3.

Drone footage shot by Azamat Sarsenbayev shows hundreds of the birds wading through the shallow waters of the lake. “I very often film these beautiful birds with 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
