Thank you for c'c on the Coal Tit, always appreciated.
After a particularly disappointing day at work I needed cheering up and started browsing through my last safari shots - dicided to share a few more with you, so here goes.....
The Black Crake is very similar in caracteristic's to the water rail - look at those typical very long toes, making balancing on water lily pads a piece of cake, also the same keen eye and very similar bobing of the tail, just as skitish and elusive as the water rail and not keen on open areas. Hope you like this one - Ina

Beautiful shot. Lovely colour and detail. Hope you never tried to get rid of the 'red eye' Grin. Moira

A terrific shot Ina, such pin sharp detail in the plumage. I like the beady red eye

An excellent shot Ina - I thought it was a funny looking water rail - you certainly got this one bitingly sharp
