With the end of the rainy season, the lake is almost completely dry. It remains a mystery how in the rainy season there also appear a lot of fish, crabs and other animals in the lakes.

The Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise

The beautiful Wilson’s Bird-of-Paradise, found exclusively on the tiny islands of Waigeo and Batanta in West Papua.

But like an unattainable muse, the stunning Wilson’s bird-of-paradise (Cicinnurus respublica, Diphyllodes Respublica) from New Guinea remains one of the most poorly known species of the family. The Wilson’s bird-of-paradise is unmistakable with its bright crimson back, yellow cape, shimmering green chest, blue feet, and most of all, its remarkable turquoise crown.
