Hammerkop

Hammerkop Photo
Taken from a boat on the Kazinga Channel in Uganda, this picture won first place in USAID’s spring 2011 Frontlines Environment Photo Contest. WCS Photographer Julie Larsen Maher describes her award-winning shot: "The hammerkop spent a long time with his prey. It looked more a like a ritual dance, as the bird tossed the lizard high in the air, and caught it again and again. I set my camera on the fastest frames-per-second and caught the shot. "
