This watering hole that’s in Serengeti seems so wonderful with many wild animals around it. Of course, this amazing picture is a part of photographer Wilkes’ Day to Night project. It’s a very interesting project where there’s quite a lot of composite images taken at different places. The pictures that are taken are gathered into single frames and displayed like in this picture of the watering hole. 

For this particular photo as per the reports of National Geographic, he had been sitting for 30 hours behind a crocodile blind 18 feet above ground in the Seronera National Park. You can see that during the time of over 26 hours many amazing animals like zebras, elephants, and hippos had visited. Have a more detailed look at the composite photo.

For each of these composite photos in the project, the photographer takes about an average of 1,500 photos which is about 20 gigs of storage. And after, he does the editing part, and then a single amazing photograph is created. For someone who’s a lot interested in the wild, this image would be the perfect image to see.
