CommentI watched a family of 5 moving through the waterway looking for their afternoon snack. I liked this photo as it showed the reedy environment which was being searched. There is also a bit of movement in the water which adds to the feel of the picture. The photo was taken in a water channel under some Eucalyptus trees which gave some dappled light onto the scene.
