This Spur-winged Lapwing must not feel like prey, because it is strolling behind a huge Nile crocodile, They are on the shore of the Ewaso Ng'iro River

Ewaso Ng'iro is a river in Kenya which rises on the west side of Mount Kenya and flows north then east and finally south-east, passing through Somalia where it joins the Jubba River.[1] The upper basin of the Ewaso Ng'iro River is 15,200-square-kilometre (5,900 sq mi).[2] The river has a continuous water supply due to the glaciers on Mount Kenya. Ewaso Ng'iro crosses seven arid to semi-arid landscapes. It is characterized by vastly different physiographic features and species and has become a fundamental component to the survival of the wildlife, as well as the expansion of human population and socio-economic developments. Water, the limited land resource provided by the Ewaso Ng’iro watershed is unevenly distributed throughout the higher and lower regions of the catchment due to the large percentage necessary to maintain agricultural practices and climatic changes (Mutiga, Su, and Woldai 3).
Ewaso Ng'iro River
The river's name is derived from the local community's language. It means the river of brown or muddy water. It is also called by some the "Ewaso Nyiro." Wikipedia
