    The bird has the lazy eye thing happening a good opportunity to score a mirror reflection if only the water was more say ripple less.

    A delightful image John. Nicely sharp and detailed and for mine, the composition is beautifully balanced. The position of the subject within the frame and the spacing both above the bird and below the refection make an image that is very comfortable to look at. The water dribble - perfect.

    Nice one John, I like the reflection, a mirror image may be nicer but I quite like the broken wavey affect. On another note, never seen so many of these birds till my recent trip to Vic, an extreme rarity in 'my patch' and never seen as many on any trip south.
