19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Distraction display

While developing the interpretative trail of The Colombian National University, La Paz Campus I had the chance to see a distraction display I´ve never seen before. This thick-knee (Burhinus bistriatus)felt uncomfortable with my presence, I asume it had a nest nearby, and start doing this weird dance like display to catch my attention.
