Lake Ndutu can be a mesmerizing place during the great migration. Rains compel Wildebeest and Zebra toward a darkened horizon and eventually to the fields where they will give birth to the next generation. Above, a small portion of the throng circumnavigates the lake.
In the trees overlooking the lake and Augur Buzzard stands sentry.
Greater Flamingos quarrel with one another while feeding in the shallows.
A Black-headed Heron takes wing ahead of the advancing herd.
A Blacksmith Plover forages near the lake edge.
A lone Hooded Vulture with the decaying head of a Wildebeest.
A Northern White-crowned Shrike keeps a keen eye on the surrounding grasslands.
Moving right along, a snail takes its time outside of the Ndutu Wildlife Lodge.
The view from the cottages often includes hares, impala, Black-shouldered Kites, and Dik Dik.
It is a vibrant and lush place after the rains, and life seizes every opportunity to thrive.
