Laguna Chaxa - In the quietest moments

This is the best I could do with my camera. The quality isn’t really good because the picture is taken with low light very early in the morning right after the sun rose from behind the mountains.

Near San Pedro de Atacama the Laguna Chaxa is located at an altitude of 2.300 meters. Early in the morning in a remarkable silence you can find here a lot of flamingos.

Three different species live there:
- Andes flamingo (Phoenicoparrus andinus)
- James’ flamingo (Phoenicoparrus jamesi)
- Chilean flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis)

In the workshop a closer view of two flamingos.
