Our target species for the drive out over the salt lagoon, these guys proved elusive until the very end, right as we were about to turn around, when a pair of them appeared on the side of the road just in the water, very close. This shot is hardly cropped at all, just a tiny bit on the bottom to get rid of a bit of the window that was in the way.
Driving around the salty lagoon at Walvis Bay, we saw large numbers of these cute little plovers feeding on the mud flats close to the water. They were really very cute, because they would run as a pair, keeping in step with each other.
This pair of barking geckos (male is on the left with yellow throat) was dug out of a burrow 5 km ESE of Rooibank near the Kuiseb River. [At the time of observation (1986), Walvis Bay was part of South Africa, not Namibia.]
Supposed to be a vagrant in southern Africa, we saw approximately 36 individuals
