CommentI have chosen to submit this shot to the competition as I liked the rather plain but dark background and the soft early morning light that brings out the best in the strongly contrasting plumage in this male White-fronted Chat. It was very much worth laying in the wet & decaying seaweed to enjoy this close encounter!
