    Great control of the fill flash Ofer! Love the pose and the detail in the feathers. You managed to get a nice clean background which can be difficult for these birds.

    Nice to find Crakes down at Lake Wallace, Ofer.

    Sorry - I just posted another Spotted Crake not realising that you had just posted one.

    WOW, pushing that 'camera to its limits' sure suggests terrible light conditions Ofer. Marvelous result and nice to see you posting again. Look forward to more.

    Great shooting in such low light but even better processing @ ISO 5000,

    Very nice Ofer and that pose is great. I wonder if a little less contrast may assist? Great work with the fill flash. Wilson

    Lovely low angle Ofer and a nice 'crake' pose. Not bad for 5000!
