CommentI posted this image for this competition as this shows the adult Brolga In action. The young bird is following the adult . They are trying to take off. The photo displays a combination of a large amount of energy in a soft and gentle bird. The light was not harsh as it was mostly cloudy in the afternoon. I chose the image with water on the background than shrubs and bushes with tall grass. The back ground enhances the bird\'s colours and action.
