CommentI was up at an amazing place called Hamelin Station about three years ago. The station has created a wetland area surround by vegetation and a bird hide. It is a perfect place to observe and photograph birds and I was delighted when this little Baillon's Crake appeared from the reeds. I loved this photograph because of the reflections not only of the gorgeous little bird but also the surrounding habitat showing where he lives.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D with 100-400 mm lens - hand held
1/500, F14, ISO 400 (since then use F5.6 and F8.0 and was actually lucky to get this shot as it is).
LocationHamelin Station 4 hours north of Geraldton, Western Australia
