Nicely composed photo of the moorhen , exposure or contrast is perhaps a bit too high as some detail in the beak and feathers is lost.
I also find your video very informative.
We have them here too. Such a lovely bird , pity it is called common.
I will visit your blog to see more.

nice bird in water environment. Very good presentation. Nice point of view.
Thanks for sharing,
There not much of a difference the US and the Australian variety. Maybe the legs, they are orange in Australia. Nice close up from a good POV, well composed. A little burn on the hi-light.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Brenda,very nice capture of this gallinula,a curious perspective and magnificent plumage details,very good exposure and colors too. Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
A beautiful bird, and one I have never had the pleasure to see in the wild. I love the contrasting colors in it's plumage as well as it's colorful bill. I also noticed how large it's feet seem to be.
Loved your video, especially the part where the mother is feeding her chick. Super job!!
PS. Did a WS to see if I could get back a little of the detail lost, due to the harsh sun you had to deal with.
