Thanks to those of you who played along on the quiz, both on Facebook and here on the blog. Check it out if you missed it yesterday.
The first photo is a picture of flamingos from the air just south of Walvis Bay. Here is a closer look in a second photo I took in the same area, although they are still far away. Here’s a link to a National Geographic post about the flocks of flamingos.
I confused a couple of people who thought the second photo was from Maine based on my opening paragraph. It is actually taken in an area not too far from the flamingos in Namibia, but from the ground. The area is called Sandwich Harbor and we took a tour of the dunes on in a 4 x 4. The dunes rise up right next to the Atlantic Ocean. It was a wonderful surprise.
Here’s a picture of me standing on the dune near where I took the second photo. It was incredibly beautiful.
