I spent a magical morning at the lakes of the Atacama watching these beautiful flamingos silent bask in the sun. Any comments or suggestions gratefully received.

    I like the symmetry in the reflections in the third image.

    As 'wildlife' shots, I wonder if you've considering cropping 2 and 3 - to both de-centralise the subjects and make them somewhat larger in frame?
    Unsurprisingly, I'd suggest - in general with wildlife, but specifically when there's water around - trying a lower pov / viewpoint. As a 700D user, with an articulated screen, it won't even cost you a bean :)
    By 'low' I mean ground or water level, not just crouching / kneeling - If you're concerned about getting the cam base messy - even something like a plastic carrier bag (with folded T shirt or similar) inside will do for trial purposes.
    You might not like the results - but at least give it a go - doing so won't guarantee a 'good' shot - but it'll almost certainly be a different one from almost everyone else's, who's standing next to you, snapping away ...

    Ultimately - for wildlife shots - I think one has to decide whether you're after a pic that's essentially a landscape (or 'record' shot) - with a bit of added fauna - or a pic where the subject plays a bigger role in frame ... and add other positive reasons to view the image, such as behaviour / drama etc - and most importantly - lighting.
