Took these a couple of days ago late afternoon, about an hour before sunset. Something is not quite right and I cant put my finger on it, could be the colour cast from the strong low afternoon sun perhaps. 1. Orange cast I think. 2. 3. Hard low late afternoon sunlight. 4. Best bird head shot I have taken to date, something in background ruined the smooth blue of the sky though. Especially around the beak. This shot is probably the most colour accurate. These birds are called Pukeko's, they are a native swamp hen here in NZ, one of the few native species to thrive alongside humans. Similar birds are found in other parts of the world.
