CommentI was thrilled to find two of these beautiful birds at the Western Treatment Plant a couple of years ago. My car was my hide and so I was able to get quite close as the birds fed on the side of the track. I cropped as required for this competition using Photoshop and the colours are original. I tried to use layers to tidy the background but there was only one layer so that was not possible.
EquipmentCanon PowerShot SX60 HS
