The picture was taken at Hula Valley Nature early morning. This nature reserve is a major stopover for bird migrating along the Syrian-African rift valley between Africa, Europe, and Asia. More than 300 different species of birds pass through this area and over 500 million birds pass through Hula Valley each year.
