Charl Stols “One of my favourite birds to photograph on the river is the African jacana.
“The Chobe’s extensive wetlands provide the perfect breeding ground for jacanas. They feed on aquatic insects and larvae found on water lily pads.
“To take this photo, I sat on the floor of the boat so I could be at eye-level with the bird. This makes the photo more intimate.”
