Comb-crested Jacana

Interesting little water birds which spend their entire life on water, even nesting on the lily leaves. Their large toes enable them to spread their weight and walk across the leaves and they also fly for short distances when necessary. There is a large population of them in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory where this photograph was taken.
