Photo of a jabiru in Australia
|60 of 64|
This is a black-necked stork, called a jabiru in Australia. I've taken this photo from a boat with a long lens, so I was surprised when our guide on the boat said that she could tell this one's a female because of the colour of the iris. The iris was tiny and a long way off, but I guess our guide's eyes were trained to look out for this. Females' irises are yellow, and males' are dark. There were lots of jabirus but when they were grouped together, they made for a bit of a messy photo. This picture of one by itself is much easier to digest.
