Seems to be coping on just the one leg, looks well enough fed.
But what a shame all the same.
Good shot of the casualty, Herman.

Poor little chap. He balances very well but when things happen you have to adapt.
Lovely shot Herman Grin

It could have happened whilst he was in the nest - the stupid creatures will use fishing line as nesting materials, it gets caught around legs and after a time the limb falls off! It does look healthy enough.

Excellent capture Herman. I hope we don't get similar casualties here when over enthousiastic volunteers try to remove birds that are frozen to the ice in the canals!

I have to ask though, I'm trying to learn here: how come you got this depth of field with f.5? Thought it should be a wider aperture...
I'm working on depth of field with not too good results Sad
Thanks for your answers Smile
