Enthusiasts of photography set out on a “photo safari” to the forest very early in the morning. There, properly camouflaged, they wait long hours starking wild game. Every trick in the book is used to get a good shot! Lake Sławskie near Zielona Góra has such crystal- clear water that the whole underwater world can be seen, even if the bottom of the lake is 12 metres deep. Cormorants build nests on one of the islands. One roll of camera film will certainly not be sufficient to capture the magnificence of these beautiful and rare birds in action.
