Another shot of an African jacana (Actophilornis africanus) pecking at water hyacinth bulbs in the shallows of a still pool of water in Mana Pools National Park. It would have been a better shot if one could get closer.

Digital Wildlife Photographic Tips
Patience and being persistent are essential to your success in capturing the right shot. Successful wildlife work requires capturing of the unusual, the sublime, and those other moments of primal, usually unseen, behaviours. Sadly too, it is often the lone or isolated approach to your photography, being without human distractions, that help you concentrate on your objectives.
