Portrait of Moor Hen Chick

By lilipolala
Only a mother could love.......

These baby Moor Hens were having a great time on Lough Erne.
They are really funny chaps with their spiky hair and huge feet
What a racket they make too!

Comments and critiques appreciated

*Big view is Best*

His mum would be proud of your picture. They aren't the prettiest of baby birds on the water, but I love to see them because I have heard of so many not surviving. Great close-up.

Amazing shot Miriam . I know how quickly they dart as far from you as possible . Could you ask his Mum to comb his hair next time he gets his portrait done . A great capture . xx

Watcha Mirriam,
excellent portrait of a Moorhen chick, guddun. I was following one along the towpath this morning, it was peeping for its mother and insisted on staying infront of meSmile
