During begin Feb'14, I saw something special at Lake Panic.

But before I show it to you - the new LP-model, first see if you can spot something unusual about this Jacana. :hmz: I was there one late afternoon while it was raining cats and dogs. This Jacana was sitting in front of the hide and then stood up.
