An uncommon photograph of a common bird.
These birds, a Moor Hen, live all over the swamps and marshes. However what is here uncommon is a good look at their feet. They are always standing in water.
The big feet, long wide toes, are made for running on the top of surface plants, and with a good start and flapping wings, water.
They run screaming when excited.
Oh, and they swim too. But I’m never sure they aren’t walking along the bottom mud.
