Tasty dish on the Lily-pad

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 8 June 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

A mother moorhen teaching its chick where to find the best food in the core of the Lily flowers. Taken at Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve.

Forgive my absence on Aminus at present, I will continue to try to visit to see your wonderful images but will not be posting or doing so quite so often due to some personal difficulties.


Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
I'm sorry if I don't manage to comment over weekends but I tend to spend most of that time with my family and only occasionally on the computer
