Sounds like a photoshop job to me.  The white line on the back of the flamingo 
is either a really stunning work of the light going through its feathers or an 
ordinary cropping job.  Since, as you point out, there are other deficiencies 
with the lighting, I'm temped to go for the latter.

I hope I'm wrong though...
