|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The spotted thick-knee is nocturnal and squats on the ground during the daytime making it difficult to spot. It hunts exclusively on the ground, feeding on insects, small mammals and lizards. It also nests on the ground, lining a scrape with grasses, feathers, pebbles and twigs. The female typically lays two eggs, and males and females rear the offspring together, with both bringing food back to the nest.|

Hello Deon - Excellent picture of this nocturnal "The spotted-thick Knee", although I had spotted this species in Talamati area(S145), as well as in kumana(H1-3) early in the morning. But it was so far...Very well presented with splendid sharpness and color. Details are really nice. Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE. Regards - Srikumar

I would suspect you were quite pleased to find this nocturnal bird in such a wonderful pose. Perfectly camouflaged and displaying outstanding detail and natural colors. Great eye contact and just the right exposure. I would have been totally thrilled to capture such an eye catching image. Well done!!
