Wonderful capture of this Swamp Hen in its authentic natural habitat, Satirtha. The dorsal perspective gives a fine impression of its plumage.

照的很漂亮 光線非常清晰 羽毛都有層次感
背景也很對稱 不會感覺很呆板

Hi Satirtha,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Purple Swamphens. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
