Comb-crested Jacana

Comb-crested Jacana
Comment:I entered this photo as I had been trying for hours over several days at Marlgu Billabong to capture a Jacana in flight. Eventually this juvenile (lack of black breast-band) put on a show for me - flying directly towards me and making the briefest of landings on lilypads before taking off again. From the comfort of the hide at the billabong and the early morning sun behind me, I was pleased to take this shot showing the enormous feet preparing for touchdown.
