Dear Peter
YES we got the Shoebill, close and under perfect light
here a few second after an attempt to catch one of these huge Lungfish, this diet obviously shaped the bill over the last million of years
picture taken from a small boat with monopod

Hi Tom,
You were very lucky! As I said, we searched for it in Uganda in a small boat and only saw it far away in the sky. But this is very impressive!
Fantastic active pose in excellent sharpness, beautiful natural colours, taken from a perfect low POV and in a pleasing composition.
Thanks for this great gift!

I agree with Peter, it really is a prehistoric bird, and photography is spectacular, with a radiant sun highlights every detail of the gray plumage. Tall grass in the foreground and the same green background raises the bird in a way that makes you lose the proportions, if you pay attention appears to be huge (I could not help remind me to "Phorusrhacos" a terror bird in prehistory inhabited patagonia, southern region of my country, Argentina. Thanks for sharing this your work, Tom!
