This was one of my more ambitious journeys in my diesel three-wheeler (though not the most ambitious). Question: where was the photo taken? The answer is at Verlorenvlei (Lost Lagoon), near Elands Bay on South Africa's West Coast, about 250km/150mi north of Cape Town. OBSERVATION: There are more than 240 species of bird at the vlei. It is part of the Cape Birding Route.
