    Another Black Cockie

    A bit better than my previous attempts, but still a fair way to go.



    Not the ideal environment for taking bird pics .... Close to a footpath with joggers, kids on bikes & scooters etc.
    Will keep on trying.

    The bird itself looks very nice. You could maybe have improved the composition by throwing yourself onto the ground before shooting.

    Oops!

    Perhaps I should say that with a bird on the ground like that, then, where possible, adopting a lower position can help your composition.

    Anyway it's still an attractive image.
