CommentTaken while sitting on a creek bank, this beautiful bird came out of some reeds, ignoring me and going about its business in search of food. This photo was chosen as it meets the requirements of the competition and it shows the unique nature of the upright tails of crakes. Cropped slightly, vibrance, noise reduction and sharpening used.
EquipmentCamera: Nikon D500; Lens: Nikkor 500 mm PF 5.6, AFS
Hand held 1/800th sec at f/8.0 ISO 720
