[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spotted this Moorhen (Waterhen) chick working along the water margins and waited until it was close enough and in as open a space as I could hope for at the time.
Probably a second brood chick.

Hi Petr
I thought it was taken in a zoo or something like that.
Apparently not.
