CommentThe rails were feeding in a picnic area after everyone else had gone home. I lay down on the grass and snapped as they came by, and I am entering this shot as I think it shows the beauty of the feather patterns and the lovely red eye, lit by the late afternoon sun. There are grains of sand on the beak from the bird's frequent stops to thrust its beak into the ground. I also like the soft background colour, complementing the russet colour of the head and beak.
