CommentTo capture this well I need to sit quietly in a natural hide of shrubs with a fill flash to stop motion with high shutter speed as its quite dark in this secluded location where the birds of the Botanic Gardens bathe regularly. Good eye contact and visibility and sharp. Square frame suits this action with eye placed on thirds line. Head direction gives a good line with good exposure and DoF is shallow enough to give a nice feel for the water around the bird but blurred towards the rear.
