CommentTaken during a long photo shoot. This is normal behaviour when the chick is threatened from above or below the water. The chick will climb onto the parents back, and hide under a wing with just the large paddle feet protruding from under the wing. On this occasion a Whistling Kite was circling above the waterhole.
EquipmentNikon D7000 - Tamron 150-600 mm - f8 - ISO800 - 1/640th sec - Tripod
