[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While in Nicaragua I had the good fortune of photographing this Common Gallinule as it waded in the shallows of a nearby lake. Previously I had only seen this bird in photographs, but at last I saw one in the wild.

The moorhen was not as skittish as some water birds I have encountered, but it still kept it distance from me. I had to hide along the bank in order to obtain this photograph.

Beautiful capture of this Moorhen in its natural habitat in Nicaragua, Ron.
The image is sharp and colorful.
Thanks for sharing this image.

Hi Ron,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Common Gallinule. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
