CommentVisiting Kakadu National Park was a highlight for me in 2019 and seeing the Comb-crested Jacana was the cherry on top! This is a younger bird that I spotted hunting in the shallows at Anbangbang Billiabong. I chose this image because the bird is nicely isolated and is glowing in the lovely evening light. It also shows a typical pose and highlights the massive size of those toes that enable the bird to walk across the lily pads. The image reminds me that a nice photograph is a good outcome, but the experience of spending time with a sort-after species in it's natural habitat is priceless.
EquipmentCanon 5D Mk4; Canon 500mm F/4,0 Mk1; Canon 1.4x TC Mk3 1/1600 sec; F/7.1; ISO 500
