Perfect exposure to capture this Actophilornis africanus fully walk on floating leaves, thanks to the support surface that give your legs very long fingers and a lightweight body. Beautiful natural colors. Congratulations, Tom ...

Hello Tom,
What a gorgeous specimen you have captured here. I photographed a similar type the Northern Jacana this past summer while in Nicaragua.
I love the beautiful colors and unique markings that this particular bird wears. You have done a perfect job of photographing this specimen in an interesting sneaking pose and in it's natural habitat.
