CommentI sat for over an hour to get some shots of these Dusky Moorhens. They are quite standoffish and tend to move off when I come in with my Camera. By sitting and waiting they eventually ignored me and continued with their normal activity. Captured in afternoon light with sun over my shoulder, giving a beautiful golden cast to the bird and background. The bird is exhibiting nice eye contact, and is in an engaging pose. I like how the reeds are working as leading lines leading your eye to the bird. I'm pleased with this image, overall
