Very nice bird. It looked surprised to see you with a Pentax.

Yes, that may well be the reason for the expression, and surprise at seeing a Pentax is a big plus. They are so taken aback that they forget to take off
There was a bit of surprise on my part as well...I was able to walk up to within about 10m for this shot.

Cheers,
Terry

Nice and close. IQ looks pretty good, also with the stacked (I presume) converters.

Jacanas look weird largely because of their enormously long toes. The right foot of the adult is reasonably visible in the posted image. Also unusual in jacanas - females form "harems" of males, that is, one female will have several nests with eggs, each attended by a different male. The males rear the chicks after they hatch (that's an adult male in the image I posted). Also unusual - when the chicks are very small and may not have legs large enough or toes long enough to walk across floating vegetation, the attending male will pick them up & carry them across difficult areas. It's trickier than the way loons & some other waterfowl allow the young to piggy-back.

I'll do kookaburra weddings and graduations in future. The catering will be a barbeque where the guests can steal the sausages. The singalongs will be great.

Many thanks Andrew.

A giant mushroom that is about 5 inches across shot last may. While not the biggest in the group it was the most photogenic the biggest one was about a foot across. It just rained all weekend and had rained consistently for a few days previous as well so the colors were super saturated everywhere in the woods.

Love this one. The OOF foliage in front really give a sense of place.

Post your best shots from 2019

I would urge all you Titans of Telephoto to post up to 10 of your favourite shots from last year here: Year End Review: Your Favorite Photos of 2019 - PentaxForums.com

So many wonderful shots in this thread that should be shared with the wider PF community.

Thanks very much indeed @Luftluss. As is often the case with birds, the setting was serendipitous - a liittle weak sunlight on the foreground and background foliage came at just the right moment.
