Protect That Egg

Species: Comb-crested Jacana | Location: Ord River, Australia

We were exploring the Ord River in Australia by speedboat. The guide had mentioned that we should look for the Comb-crested Jacana or "Jesus" bird (it runs/walks on the water). One on a nest was finally spotted. The boat slowed and I was able to grab a shot, but was not able to get better lighting. It wasn't much of a nest - just some floating grass with an egg.

About The Photographer

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
