Artist's Description

The Comb-crested Jacana, also known as the Lotusbird, has a red fleshy forehead comb, a black crown, back and breast and brown wings. The belly, face and throat are white, and there is a faint yellow tinge around the eye and throat. Both sexes are similar in appearance, but the female is larger than the male, and slightly brighter in colour. In flight, the long legs and toes trail behind the body. Young Jacanas resemble the adult birds, but are rufous to black on the head and nape, and have a rufous-black breast band. The red fleshy comb is much smaller and darker.
At a distance, the Comb-crested Jacana looks like it can walk on water. In fact, it is walking on floating plants. Its extremely long toes help it to spread its body weight over a larger area.
Canon 50D, 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS
