This image was taken in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney during my 2012 world tour. There are many interesting things to see in the gardens from flying foxes to cockatoos but it's the simple thirsty magpie who stood out. Light wasn't great at the time but I managed a reasonably fast shutter speed to freeze the water. Luckily he popped his head in my direction for this shot.Adrian Hickey
