    Thanks for the positive comments....

Old Finn, you are right, it should have been cropped with the bird in the top right quadrant, not lower left. I need to go back and re-read Martin Freeman's Photographer's Mind !

eagle1 - as far as I know, the bird is a baby coot - an adult can be seen in my entry on the Panasonic competition.

    Great capture. Poor little guy looks so vunerable. The ripples are prefect too.

    Great detail considering the movement of water around the little guy. That's what I would call a bad hair day! LOL

    How about cropping so, that the bird would swim in to the picture, not out?

    My favorite. So ugly, he's cute. The circular ripples are a nice compositional element.

    Cute and nicely composed. Every feather in focus.

    I don't know which I like best - the baby or the ripples. Lovely photo.

    Hemmed and hawed about whether this was in or out of my picks. Photographically, nice framing, location of subject, concentric ripples, and splash of colour where you want it. But I sense it should be sharper and I sense the focus is a little forward of the nose.

    One of my favs - but sure would like to know what kind of bird this is.
