Dusky Moorhen

Dusky Moorhen (Image ID 43210)
CommentI took the opportunity to take this photo as the bird stopped for preening. In between its preening the bird paused which made it easy for me to take this shot .The reflected image clearly shows the details of puffed up feathers , part of the orange red color legs and its red frontal shield with the yellow tipped bill. Combination of dark and bright components of lighting was attractive and provided contrast between the bird , the dead log ,the trees and algae in water
