Serene and peacefully, the sun was raising beyond the low hills of Bonaire. Parent and child pairs of flamingos took flight at dawn from Slagbaai behind the plantation house. We had camped overnight in the Washington Slagbaai National park which gives an amazing opportunity to experience the daily life cycle in the salines.

This is a very tall, narrow panel like a window into the flamingo’s world. A single flamingo is ankle deep in the shallow tidal pools along the shore. The high noon sun has eliminated most of the shadows but that cast by the flamingo’s neck on its back. The flamingo’s bright plumage glows with color in the strong sunlight.
This painting depicts a flamingo at life size, up close and personal, but unafraid.

The Great Blue
The Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias, is a winter visitor on the island of Bonaire. He stalks the shores of the Salinas grown full from the fall rains. An interesting note the heron flies with his neck pulled in while a flamingo flies with his neck fully extended.
