Photographer's Note

Denise Biellmann is Switzerland's most successful female figure skater. In 1981 she won first the European and then the world amateur championship. She is best known for the Biellmann spin, which entails executing a one foot spin while holding with both hands the other foot which is extended over the head.

This flamingo seemed to be practicing Biellmann Spin in the beaches of Aruba, in Southern Caribbean. :-)

Aruba is a 33km-long island of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea, located 27 kilometres north of the coast of Venezuela. Since there was no Aruba or Kingdom of Netherlands among TE's list of countries, I classified the picture under the closest country, Venezuela.

Scanned from slide, increased sharpness & saturation. Applied neat Image.
