Purple Swamphen

Purple Swamphen (Image ID 46272)
CommentThe upright posture of this Purple Swamphen reminded me of a model on a catwalk, therefore, I chose to present it with a more \'creative\' edit. The softness of the rippled water along with the smooth water in the upper 3/4 of the frame give the image a \'fancy feel\'. I chose to leave the blurred grass-bed in the upper corner to display the bird\'s wetland habitat.
