CommentIt was late in the evening when I found a family of Eurasian Coots on a pond in central Perth, and the fading light and shadows made shooting hand-held very tricky. With perseverance I was able to capture an intimate moment as a parent passed food to one of its chicks. I like how the moody feel the shadows and soft light gave this image.
