Early risers

[singlepic id=130 w= h= float=center]

This shot was taken in August at Lake Nyabikere (The Lake of Frogs) in Uganda. And indeed, every night thousands of frogs staged a cacophonous concert of high-pitched calls that individually sounded very much like someone hitting a high note on a marble xylophone. Despite getting our sleep cut short by the frogs, the anticipation of encountering new animals and interesting people made us get up early anyway. The first sight were usually local fishermen on the lake, followed by ducks, vervet monkeys, hadedah ibis, various king fishers, and great blue turacos.
