Pretty Hen Among The Reeds......




A pretty hen struts its way across this man-made lake
which forms part of the Greenfields Wetlands
I was able to capture this scene from my position
inside a nearby "Hide" which I have discovered
is a place you must sit very quietly and patiently
if you want to get results!!

This hen was quite oblivious to the fact that he was being filmed

so much fun waiting for that moment and knowing that they can't see you; great capture!

Such a beautiful capture Dianne. Certainly worth the wait in the "Hide". I have never done that although I am not sure I could sit quietly and patiently for too long.

It can be hard to sit so still and quiet while waiting, but this one yielded a great result. That is a very vibrant blue.

I keep telling my husband I need a 'blind' as we call them in my yard but sitting still isn't my idea of fun. :)
Your patience was rewarded with this lovely image! The blue feathers are striking!

A striking capture Dianne - love that gorgeous blue against the busy background of the reeds and the soft reddish touch in the foreground. Like many others, I too look forward to seeing what extraordinary images are still to come from your camera lens!

Hi there - splendid picture - I spent some time trying to get pictures of these this week - too hot and kids too noisy! Next time maybe!

What a great idea Dianne, there should be more 'hides' around, it certainly was worth the wait. I love all the pink and soft green coloured reflections, beautiful image indeed.
