This little crake was quite a poser over the week or so I was in Lesvos. Most of the mornings I was waiting for them to come out, rice bag and camera in the car. It came as close as 2 meters sometimes.

Hi jeroen,

Ive never seen a Crake before. Its an interesting little bird, i particularly like its orange eyes and the look of intense concentration on its face.

Good sharpness and composition to boot.
