I looked at your photo data (EXIF data) and noticed you had exposure compensation set at -.5, when shooting dark objects against a lighter background go +(positive) exposure compensation, the greater the backlight the more +EC you need. you could also set your exposure bracketing to get three shots at different exposures to find the right balance. Your photos look sharp, so once you get the exposure correct you are on your way.:D

Hi Dave... It is my understanding from info from the Audubon Society, that common Gallinule is indeed the species that has 12 sub species.. One of those sub species is the Common Moorhen, another is the Purple Gallinule, so are the Coots... etc. Now I could be wrong because it has happened before, but I believe I understand what the Audubon society is stating.... Take care :)....Alex

To clarify Common Gallinule is the same as a Common Moorhen - same bird, different names.

Hi Alex not entirely sure what you mean tbh but here in the UK we actually refer to the species as Moorhen or Waterhen. It's my understanding that the ABA refers to it as Common Gallinule to differentiate from American Purple Gallinule and Purple Gallinule (both full and different species unrelated to Coots) which is introduced, as is Moorhen to the U S of states.

Hi Dave... If you Google Common Gallinule, you will see the explanation... listed. If I read, and understood it correctly, (at least in the States) the Species is as you say, but the breakdown into sub species is what is most interesting... It listed the Coot as a sub species which was news to me.... along with 11 others which also includes the Common Moorhen.... Hey I just enjoy shooting them... I'm glad you forced me to check as it is an education for me as well... Take care my friend...Alex
