Lovely pic of the Jacana running...with sun shining on those beautiful feathers, Jan. :dance:

They got amazingly long legs and toes to negotiate their way around the lake. :D

Thank you for sharing... :thumbs_up:

What a beautiful pic of the croc in the calm water at the Lake, Jan. :dance:

Excellently captured :clap: :clap: :clap:

Managed to get a action shot of the Pied just coming out of the water on a cloudy day.
