Beautifully caught. The details you've captured (especially that gorgeous eye) are wonderful.

I think I may have cropped a little off the left hand side (just the 'empty' strip, up to the grass). This would remove the blade that looks as if it is stabbing the bird! Smile

A rather excellent close-up photograph depicting this rather beautiful looking Coot. Beautiful natural colours, and rather excellent detail.

Regards Nathan

Natural habitat and really good exposure to hold the blacks and whites together

This is a fine close up shot with superb pluming detail and a great exposure.
