This photo is the 1000th addition to the gallery. I chose a species that is very special to me, and one that I went to great lengths to see. You can read the full account of the experience by clicking here. This bird was the only one I saw, although I saw it on two evenings (assuming the second one was the same bird), but it was amazing to see. I have some exciting species in my sights that I hope will feature somewhere along the way towards the next 1000 images.
