Juvenile Moorhen

By SlowSong
A little family of moorhens was playing on the pond in Hyde Park. The plants on the surface were such a brilliantly bright green I look the colour down so I could concentrate more on the youngster. Just missed focus on the eye unfortunately, but it was a long way away. No excuse though. I like the expression in mum's face in V1 which seems to say "Kids, huh!".

Big thanks to David and Alan for their UAs on my previous image. Much appreciated. Smile
