When I think flamingos, I normally think plastic and lawn. This photo from Times reader "tesmoscow" reminds me that you can find these majestic birds in the wild. Here, a flock flies over a patch of greenery in Mozambique.
Besides flamingos, visitors can find national parks, nature reserves, beaches and more in this southeast Africa nation. Mozambique, which received its independence from Portugal in 1975, experienced unrest until the mid-1990s. Since then, it has seen increased economic growth and is trying to expand its tourism industry.
