[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bronze-winged Jacana (Metopidius indicus) is a jacana. It is the only member of the genus Metopidius. The jacanas are a group of waders in the family Charadriidae, which are identifiable by their huge feet and claws which enable them to walk on floating vegetation in the shallow lakes that are their preferred habitat. They are found worldwide within the tropical zone.

A little dark perhaps with this tricky exposure, but colours look good and the sheen is also seen and a nice low POV to get perfect compose for a Jacana..Nicely done but maybe one stop away from perfect.

Bella variedad de Jacana y oportuna captura mientras camina sobra las aguas como un Jesús. En mi país, Argentina, es común en las orillas de nuestros grandes ríos (como los que tienen tambien en la India) ver a la Wattled Jacana (Jacana jacana) y que nosotros llamamos "Gallito de Río". Un abrazo y felicitaciones
