The golden bronze plummage of the Jacana is eye catching especially in this pose and much more so with the rippled blue water BG.. Wonderful capture and composition.

A superb close-up of this Jacana species. The pose is great and taken from the best POV with fine sharpness and natural colours in a pleasing composition. The OOF water BG sets it off well too.
Thanks and best regards,
above all perfect compo and nice colors
the white cheek area is burned but all the other plumage just perfect
one minor problem is the visible noise in the bg, maybe due to 400 iso with the 40D or better visible with sharpening, however there is not a single over sharpening artifact
the sharpness with the 600 mm is amazing, maybe you need the 7D now a camera so much better than the 40D and even 60D.

A very attractive bird that I'm not really familiar with. It reminds me of a type of stork or heron with it's big powerful looking legs. It is such a gorgeous bird with beautiful markings and vivid colors.
Unfortunately, you will have to adjust the blurb.
The ID is incorrect. This is not a Lesser Jacana - genus Microparra.
This is an adult African Jacana - Actophilornis africanus.

Beautiful image of this Jacana. I like the plumage detail. Stunning colours and beautiful pose. The ripple effect in the water completes the image beautifully. Great notes. Well done.
I have been away for longer than a month recovering after an operation and I missed out on lots of beautiful images. Luckily I am able to leave my penny of thoughts on this one.
I just love the different colours in this Jacana's feathers and more so because of the natural sunlight highlights it to the best. I also like the backdrop created by the water and the beautiful circles on the water's surface. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Pictured bird is very beautiful and you have pictured at an attractive moment. Details of the image as well a colours are great. I also like square cropping. White spot on the bird head is OE a little bit but it is not a point. Warm regards and TFS.
