16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sociable Drink

Sitting on a hide is always exciting. That is how I got this shot of Sociable Weavers coming for a drink at a water hole in the Kalahari. Being a desert dwelling species they can spend long periods without water, but now and then they have to drink and this time I was there waiting for them!
