Today was our last day in Amboseli National Park.  In the morning we headed over to photograph the flamingos one more time.  We had dark clouds covering Mt. Kilimanjaro which would have been in the background of the lake with the flamingos.  Suddenly the sky in the east cleared and the sun hit the flamingos which created a dramatic lighting situation.  From time to time we had zebras and wildebeests walking through the shallow lake.  Over lunch a strong wind came up and the animals disappeared in a dust storm.  Just before sunset the wind died down which made for good back-lit photos.
