I took this shot of Greater Flamingos in Kune Vain, Lezhe, Albania.


Greater Flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus) are migratory birds that can be found in various parts of the world, including Albania. Albania is a small country in southeastern Europe that is located on the Balkan Peninsula. It is bordered by Montenegro to the north, Kosovo to the northeast, North Macedonia to the east, Greece to the south and southeast, and the Adriatic and Ionian Seas to the west and southwest, respectively.


In Albania, flamingos can be found in various wetland areas, such as the lagoons of Karavasta, Narta, Patoku, as well as in the estuaries of the Kune Vain, Lezhe and Viluni, Shkoder. These wetlands provide ideal feeding and breeding grounds for flamingos, which are known for their distinctive pink plumage and long, thin legs.


Flamingos that visit Albania are typically greater flamingos, which are one of six species of flamingos found worldwide. These birds can grow up to 1.5 meters (5 feet) tall and have a wingspan of up to 1.4 meters (4.5 feet). They are omnivorous and feed on a variety of organisms found in wetland habitats, including algae, crustaceans, and mollusks.


Flamingos are a fascinating species that add to the rich biodiversity of Albania's natural landscape. If you're interested in seeing these birds in their natural habitat, a visit to one of Albania's wetland areas is highly recommended.

All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
