From my recent vacation in Costa Rica

The Northern Jacana or Northern Jaçana (Jacana spinosa) is a wader which is a resident breeder from coastal Mexico to western Panama, and on Cuba, Jamaica and Hispaniola. It sometimes breeds in Texas, USA, and has also been recorded on several occasions as a vagrant in Arizona. The jacanas are a group of wetland birds, 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. In Jamaica this bird is also known as the 'Jesus bird', as it appears to walk on water

Luxurious capture because I'm talking luxury, luxury ... That focus, that light, that delicate moment of his fingers caressing the water surface ... and the poetic background of reeds guessed. Mario, I think you're taking this art of nature photography to dizzying heights. All my admiration,
a big hug from Argentina,
