This Comb-crested jacana chick practices walking through the billabong on his oversized feet

The latest Australian Geographic Flickr group photo of the week.

Congratulations to this week’s AG Flickr group member Anne, for her image ‘Comb-crested jacana chick’


“Little bigger than a ping-pong ball, this young comb-crested jacana (Irediparra gallinacea) strides out on Yellow Water billabong, Kakadu NP,” says Anne.

“Spending their lives on water, these birds have large feet for walking on floating vegetation in search of food.”
