A male pennant-winged nightjar (Macrodipteryx vexillarius) in flight at night - easily the most challenging photograph I have ever taken. This image needed the help of 3 other people, and took many night soy trying. Through all the nights, I only managed one frame I was truly happy with, and this is it! It is a rare bird, and only has its famous pennants for a short time of the year during the breeding season. I was very lucky to find this individual, and even luckier to get the shot!
