Moorhen Chick #03

~Huge pond, tiny bird~
Oh, to grow into my feet,
moorhen chick reflects.

    1. There are railings around the pond and lots of places for the moorhens to hide, including an island covered in undergrowth right in the middle of the pond. Hopefully, they’re safe. The seagulls visit but seem to leave the chicks alone.


    1. Thank you, Inese 🙂 I think that particular shade of green is unique. It amazes me how many different shades of green there are in nature. If one was to count them, I’m sure they’d outnumber all the variations belonging to other colours. Maybe I’m saying that because I live in a green country. If I lived in the desert, it would be all the shades of white, yellow, orange etc, without a patch of green to be seen other than in an oasis.

      1. Sarah, I so agree with you! No other color is represented in such variety. Moorhen green is a very special color 🙂 I love to watch these sturdy green legs and the bold butts, and I am going to post a picture of one in my Saturday’s blog. I will link it to your post, thank you for the inspiration 🙂
