Description

The motel that I was staying in Hervey Bay was next to the Botanic Garden which is a sanctuary for wild birds. I was following the ducks quietly from behind hoping that one of them would spread its wings. The three ducks at the foreground of this picture simply swam and walked away. Then a dusky moorhen (sp. Gallinula tenebrosa) standing on the river bank to my left suddenly took flight. I quickly snapped the shot and simply hoped that it would turn out.
