[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken after the rain at Tygum Lagoon, Logan. This lovely Common Moorhen was walking around in the puddles of water.
Common Moorhens are hardly ever far from water and prefer freshwater habitats with floating plants and reedbeds, and still or slow-moving water.

Hi Claudia,

Nice capture! I like the placement of the bird in the frame here. I also like how you've included enough environment to get the animal and its surroundings nicely. It may be just a tad oversharpened? Nice work!

Hi Claudia, another beautiful looking Aussie bird, nicely framed and good colours, a bit too much grass showing though, tfs
