Each morning whenI walk past this little lake, I always stop and drink in the beauty. Sometimes I take my little Sony Cyber Shot point and shoot, and other times I take my DSLR Canon 1000D. I wonder if you can tell which shot is from which camera.

One morning I saw a Water Hen also called a Moor Hen sitting on her elaborate nest built in the branches of a fallen tree.
Most days she had her back to me but this day I was lucky. She sat there for days and days until one day.........
I could see three little orange beaks peeping out from under her.
The very caring male came and gave mother hen food to distribute to the three hungry mouths. Then he would busily swim off looking for more.
Mother is telling her babies dad will be back soon with more.
The Water Hen has other friends nearby.
There were 8 seen sitting on this log one day.
