hello friends, the Common Moorhen family,
i would love a better focusing on them

from the All About Birds website

« The most widely distributed member of the
rail family, the Common Moorhen inhabits
marshes and ponds from Canada to Chile,
from northern Europe to southern Africa,
and across Asia to the Pacific. Vocal and boldly
marked, the species can be quite conspicuous,
sometimes using its long toes to walk
atop floating vegetation.

« Newly hatched chicks of the
Common Moorhen have spurs on their
wings that help them climb into the nest
or grab emergent vegetation. »

Hello Asbed,
A delightful capture of a Moorhen parent feeding its chicks.
I like the way you captured them just where the reflection of the water changes to reflect the blue sky and the composition is nice.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Ciao Asbed, lovely family composition, fascinating reflections, good natural ambientation, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
Nice photo in well saturated colours. Good composition and POV.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Asbed,

this are an not so good picture as usual, the reflections in the water from the pipes or what they are (don't know the right english words) disturbing the photo.
Good pov and dof.
Fine colours.


Bonito conjunto aunque la imagen se ve algo difuminada. Es curioso, pero casi obtienes mejores resultados de las aves en vuelo que paradas jajajaja.


Wonderful shot of these Moorhen Asbed. It looks like you've focus okay on the mother. You've framed it well too. That's a beautiful orange and yellow beak. TFS Trevor

Bonjour Asbed,

Les réflexions sur l'eau de l'étang sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de cette famille de poules d'eau. L'image est claire et nette. La luminosité a un bel effet sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.


bonjour Asbed
photo très attendrissante de cette maman poule d'eau et de ses petits, adorable scene et image très bien composée avec des jolies couleurs d'interressants reflets dans l'eau
merci pour le partage et bonne nuit

Hello Asbed,
a nice family well viewed with a nice reflection by the poles.
The bluish water makes this shot pretty too.
nice clarity of the overall activity.


How lovely!!! Loved your "SINCERE" notes.
Hope I can see a "Coot" again; saw it last year... made an image but it was not good.
Best regards,

Hi Asbed,

Lovely shot of the Moorhen and its family. Very nicely captured. I had seen a similar looking purple swamp hen in my Bhigwan trip. I will post it on TN soon.

This is lovely shot. Nice to see the chicks. Very nice sharp image with good clarity and reflection. Very well done1
