Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus)

Another dismal day, but it looks likely that we could get some dry sunshine towards the weekend, let's hope so.

  1. What a pretty bird and it appears they have huge feet! I like how you caught the red and yellow on the legs to match the bills.

  9. They are beautiful, Bob. I have never been successful in taking pictures of Moorhens. They are so shy. Great images with gorgeous light and sharpness. Greetings, Joke

  11. Ptaki mają dzioby w bardzo ładnych kolorach. Ciekawie to wyglada w porównaniu z czarnym upierzeniem. Pozdrawiam.
    Birds have beaks in very nice colors. This looks interesting compared to black plumage. Yours.
