I think it has lost its right foot. I was actually about to take some pictures of a cheetah and I wanted the DoF for that but, the bird appeared and I took the opportunity to get the picture.Nice picture, never seen a wattled lapwing before.
Injured? Right leg looks odd?
May I ask why f11?
Does the duck swim around in circles?What an interesting bird! It looks like a cut-and-paste of a few different kinds. Btw, we have a duck in our area for a couple of years with only one useful leg, and she's doing fine.
Nice picture. Not something I see in my neck of the woods.
Thanks for all the comments.What a beauty.
