What a way to begin a day! Stunning pic! And how lucky for those who live in Yala, the wild animals I mean, to see such a spectacle daily. =D

The sunrise reflections in the water are beautiful. Great shot!

Gorgeous :)

A very beautiful sunrise. I don't get to see things like this often because I live too close to the city. I either have buildings in the way, or I have trees blocking my view.

Clo,
Thanks a lot for your comments!

Mahasen,
Glad you like it!

Sankara,
Thanks mate!

Rainfield,
Yes that is a great way to start the day!

Willie aka Reptoz,
Thanks for dropping by and for your comments!

Harumi,
Usually you see more animals early morning and late in the evening. I think they all come out of their hiding places to see the sun rise and sun set! :)

Diane AZ,
Thanks a lot for your comments!

Emma,
Thanks :)

Ratty,
Yes, this particular area is a plain with trees widely spaced like in a savanna, so one of the best place to view a good sunrise or sunset.

Harumi said...

You mean the nocturnal ones? Or is it like most animals out there keep a low profile during day time?

George said...

Harumi,
Not only nocturnal ones.
Most animal keep a low profile during the mid day. Especially the prized sightings like elephants, leopards seen in the early mornings or evenings.

George,
Thanks a lot!

Jingle,
Thanks very much :)

It is actually a small pool of water. There are many such pools of water of varying size in Yala. Those are the best places to see wildlife. Thanks a lot for comments!

Betsy,
No worries,:)
I saw your wonderful photos from Fall Creek Falls. Also I loved the latest photos of heavenly West Virginia. Thanks a lot for comments. Have a great week!
