You are with me on a boat trip along Yellow Water. This beautiful area of wetlands is in the Kakadu National Park.
I thought the pure white of the Great White Egret looked dazzling in the patches of shade and among the reflections along the water's edge. The smaller bird in the background is possibly a Little Egret.
Kakadu has more than 280 species of birds. This is about one third of all Australia's bird species.
