Couldn't believe the size of fish this 7 month old Juvenile Black Necked Stork aka Jabiru got. It was bloody huge!!. Hes beating mum and dad now in the fish catching stakes and I reckon will only get better as time goes on :)...Although this will be a hard act to follow for him but you never know....maybe a huge turtle next :).

And today finally got the adult Jacana minding her/his? eggs . Each time I check the adult flies away so as to distract me away from the nest. This time I stayed back a fair way and waited for him to land back on the eggs ....Huge crop with atmospherics wreaking havoc on the af but worth a post I recon as its rarely seen adult on or standing over the actual nest eggs

Yep, the Great Diffuser in the Sky. Great series of photos Clipper.


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

It is. There's even been some turn-stones there lately (of the ruddy variety).:)
