From the archives. I think this might be a juvenile common moorhen, but stand to be corrected.

Wow, I'm jealous! I see this species around here every winter, but there's nowhere I can get close enough for a shot like this.

Cracking good shot, Bill, and I should know which species, but, to save me searching back who knows how many pages, please enlighten me!

Thank you, Jack. I had the same difficulty before until I learned a trick from an experienced photographer. You watch from far away, find some duck near the shore. Wait till it dives, then run at it, stop before it emerges from water, keep still and stay as low as possible (camouflage yourself and camera/lens certainly helps), wait for its next dive and repeat, until you get close enough. I then sit low on water edge (or lie down if condition permits) to photograph.
