Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Crossing the Mara River” by Robert Henderson. Location: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

“This wildebeest herd was crossing the Mara River in Serengeti National Park late in the season in mid-November,” explains Henderson. “They jam themselves so closely together there’s literally no room for the 6-meter crocodiles who are lurking nearby.”
