CommentThis is a young bird as evidenced by the plumage and some yellow on the gape. I found that interesting. It is drinking and I like the ripples below the bill and around its feet. I had to crop some rubbish from the background but the feather detail has remained. I like the overall complimentary colours of the bird and the background.
