Okay, now we have flying Jacanas. These are great to watch, because they have to put their legs somewhere

I got these shots from a bank we were hiding on, and while Tate wtached out for crocs, I tried to get this sequence.

#3 Prepare to overtake

@chthoniid: Amazing series - I don't think I've ever seen a bird flying with legs that untidy... If I were a bird, I imagine that's how I'd fly.

@Bob J & @wolfy - thanks, Australia has a lot of bird variety and the NT wetlands are a good spot to find them. I'm beguiled by the jacana's feet however.   I'd also like to thank Tate for doing a great job looking out for crocodiles while I was peering down the camera viewfinder.

That does it, I'm switching to macro (or something); keeping up with you guys is getting too tough!
Great shots, all

Looked out our back window and saw this little group. Shot thru the slightly glass as opening the window would have scared them off.

Alpha Male in Charge?


This is my first posting using the new monitor, so hope the colours all look OK.

Digiton,
love the #2 shot too.
We only have one species of owl here - called the Morepork cos that's what it sounds like he's saying. And very hard to see them at all, but very easy to hear in the bush.
