Deft use of a converter works wonders, as is evident in this rather large image of a Purple Swamphen. Colin. The Purple Moorhen I once captured on the banks of river Yamuna in New Delhi was bluish in colour.
Excellent capture from a good point of view that shows the bird in perfect clarity and with rich colours on it.
Thanks and regards.

Hope you are well friend. I owe you many comments, you know and am thankful for your admirable critiques to my photos which I won't be able to match.
This is superb shot of this moving purple swamphen which we call purple moorhen. No doubt the sunlight is harsh but your focus and control of terrible light conditions have given us a wonderful shot which amply shows the fine colours of this common bird of our countryside ponds and reservoirs.
Thanks a lot for sharing a really superb shot with good eye contact....take care...warm regards/Abid

what a nice capture of pretty Porphyrio porphyrio, with nice focus, POV and exposure. Nicely composed.
This species presents in Turkiye. Formerly it was rare, but recently more common relatively.
Coloration a bit different between Turkish and Australian populations. Ours is more bluish.
However both of them very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
All the best

such a lovely shot. At my place, its so difficult to approach this bird.
you did excellently in giving a sharp shot with lively details.
The lighting is splendid. What a lovely composition.

In what looks like well-managed harsh lighting this is a fine capture of the Australian Purple Swamphen.
The sharpness and DOF are excellent with great focusing on the eye that is the focal point of this fine composition.
This is great to view!
Thanks and best regards,
