CommentI thought that I would enter this photo as I like the way the side by side positioning of the male and female highlights the colouration differences and vibrancy of the plumage of both sexes. The early morning light reflecting off the water helps to give soft light to the birds, helping them to stand out, without casting a “ripple effect” on the them. I was also pleased with the cheerful looking character of the pair as well as their making good eye contact with me.
