As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a nationwide lockdown until April 14 in a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus, several Indian Forest Service (IFS) officers have taken over Twitter to share videos and pictures of animals. On April 11, IFS officer Sudha Ramen shared a video ‘Flamboyance’. In the video, one can see the flamingos dancing in ‘perfect coordination’ in a bid to attract their female partner.
Flamboyance - that's how a group of flamingos are called. This is their unique dance in perfect coordination to attract their female partner.— Sudha Ramen IFS 🇮🇳 (@SudhaRamenIFS) April 11, 2020
Maybe that's how the word 'Flamboyance' derives its meaning - to attract the attention with one's exuberance. Credits n the video. pic.twitter.com/vF4rAuA0HQ
Shared just a few hours ago, the video has been viewed more than 2,000 times. The IFS officer even explains the term ‘Flamboyance’. With several comments, netizens have called the video ‘a beautiful march’. One Twitter user wrote, “Wow... This is beautiful. Made my day”, while others shared more pictures of the beautiful creature.

Similar to Sudha Ramen, IFS Susanta Nanda has also been sharing videos to keep netizens entertained. He shared videos of elephants, civet, bison, deer strolling the streets of cities and towns amid the nationwide curfew that has been imposed since March 25. Just another day, the Indian Forest Service officer shared a video of the colourful chestnut eared aracari, and also a video of an owner feeding three chicks.
