Wednesday photo: Flamingos

I had been trying to see these pretty-in-pink birds for years, with failed attempts in Kenya and South Africa.

When I planned my trip through Namibia and Botswana, I specifically arranged one extra day before the trip so I could see the flamingos in Walvis Bay. I booked lodging within walking distance and when I arrived there were none visible.

Like on my trip to Lake Nakuru in Kenya, I was warned the flamingos had flown the coop for more favorable waters, but I was assured I would be able to find at least one.

They were a couple of kilometers down the bay and far from the shore. And they weren’t pink.

But I can finally say that I have seen them!
