Love the colourful legs and beak of your dusky moorhen. Nest building in autumn? We have a Lotus pond at the Adelaide Bot.Gardens as well. Aren't they splendid plants? I adore our Australian Wood ducks.
your wood ducks with the tiny bills are just so cute! maned, too! the moorhen looks so proud standing on what i presume to be a nesting site. very cute!
Great bird photos and I would certainly like to see the lotus flowers.
Nice photos! The Moorhen and Wood Duck are both two birds I have never seen.
The moorhen certainly stands out in his black dress with bright orange accents. Handsome bird.I enjoyed your bird shots but just as much I enjoyed your images of the lotus. Wonderful shots Carole!
Good morning Carole. Your moorhen looks like the one I photographed in London.Costas
Nice shots of the birds. The lotus pods are gorgeous. Such interesting shapes.
Beautiful pictures Carole.The ducks are beautiful, the lotus flowers are great.Regards, Irma
It's similar to our moorhen, but colored differently. Love the shot of it on the wood pile! The ducks are beautiful!
Brian, that pile of sticks would be a nesting-site
Hi Carole, I love your Moorhen shots. Especially the Moorhen on the nest. The lotus pond looks beautiful. Great shots of your Wood duck. All are lovely photos, thanks for sharing. Have a happy day!
Great crisp clear shots. What kind of camera and lens are you using. I know I have asked this before but I've forgotten......that happens a lot lately. The Moorhen looks very proud of its big nest.
Look forward to seeing your lotus flowers Carole but in the meantime that tower of nest material is very impressive. Great shots of the waterbirds.
thanks to all for your lovely comments, and to Diane b - this link tells you all about my camera/lenshttp://dragonfly47.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/about-my-two-cameras.html
Beautiful images, they are precious Carole.
The moorhens are always such busy birds - even if they are common, they are always worth watching.And who does not like ducks!Cheers and thanks for linking to WBWStewart M - Melbourne
Muy bonitas las capturas.Saludos
Great series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
...it really DOES have a mane. So aptly named. And the moorhen, they're more brightly colored than the ones here in USA
Love the red on the Morrhen. That's quite a nest!
The moorhen has such an odd face...I would love to see the lotus in bloom!!!
Gorgeous series of photos! Be sure to return when the lotus bloom!
