This photo is wonderful! It looks like it was taken in a paradise. There are almost all the possible colours in this photo, but they somehow play together well, so it is not tricky at all! I like the composition. Did you play with a Photoshop to create that water effect, or was it just natural?
Technically, this photo is great and I also think it is quite original. You can see many many many photos of flamingos on dA, but this one is somehow unnusual.
It is a really great work, I hope you will share more of animal photos with us
erm... birds are not in the class of mammalia, Mammalia have hair,(in some only in stages before birth like whales), give live birth and feed their young from their mammary glands (cats, horses, cows...(and even us humans)) Birds are in the class of Aves. The only flying mammalia are bats
