CommentMost Dusky Moorhens at Coburg Lake play it safe, sticking to the quieter waters of the lake itself or foraging around on the surrounding lawns. This somewhat more adventurous bird was noticed living dangerously on the very edge of the steep weir waterfall, working its way systematically across the top, and in the process creating great furrows in the water from each of its feet and its beak. A slow shutter speed of 1/40th was used to better capture the flowing of the water
