NF Photo 121114, Flamingo Lake,  Layounne, Western Sahara, Morocco

As the sun started to set we reached Layounne and made our last stop at what somebody called Flamingo Lake. It was so beautiful in the light of the setting sun and the stilts was gorgeous.
I fell in love with this bird when I first saw it in Camargue. It does not vsiit Sweden so this was a treat.

  3. Thank you for sharing your images of these very handsome birds! I was lucky to find several pairs with chicks in the last few weeks but have not yet been able to get any good photos. :(
