CommentI took many images of this Purple Swamphen, finally selecting this one because it has captured the rich purple of the Swamphen's body, the bright red eye and bill (with the bill not being covered in mud or vegetation, as was the case in all my other images on this shoot!) the bokeh of the background complements the image, and there is eye-contact with the subject.
