The jabiru is sometimes known as the black-necked stork. It is however, of a different genus to the North American black-necked stork.

The species is found throughout Asia with Australia being its southern limit. In the wetlands of the Northern Territory, they are reasonably common but of course, shy if you happen to be carrying a camera.

The tricky bit of course, is to get the detail recorded across the bright and dark zones- I underexposed slightly the shot and then restored the exposure in raw conversion.
