Here's one from my recent trip to Australia. These birds are so elegant and stunning to watch as they perform their courtship rituals. What a treat to have been able to observe this on such a beautiful morning.

This is really great. Beautiful subjects engaged in compelling behavior in good light and at such a low shooting angle - it simply could not be better.

Stunning shot, Glenn! One of my favourite water birds and such a beautiful image of this classic courtship behaviour.
