Flamingos Form Crescent Shape in Kazakhstan Lake

A large flock of flamingos formed a crescent shape on Lake Karakol near Aktau, Kazakhstan, on March 3.

Drone footage shot by Azamat Sarsenbayev shows hundreds of the birds relaxing in 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
