A crazy chick !

 
This crazy chick was spotted on the edge of the lake within Biddulph Grange gardens (posted last month). Not much chance of losing its balance with those HUGE feet! - and no, it hasn't been "photoshopped".  (I wondered whether it might be a swamp hen chick)
 
Not sure that this image truly qualifies as a macro shot, but I'll submit it anyway to
Macro Monday 2 and Camera Critters - with thanks to the hosts of both sites.

It's a young Moorhen. Pretty, ain't they?

Many thanks for the correct ID John. Strangely, it doesn't fit my idea of "pretty" though! "Cute" at a stretch. (Thanks for visiting)

Nice shot, I guess it will grow into those feet :)

Great photo, the chick looks a little doubtful, even with the large feet.

This little character looks very nerw to life. Awesome macro of him stepping out with big feet.

It is a baby moorhen! I saw some just like it on a blog yesterday. Aren't those amazing feet! Wish I could see one for real. I've seen the adult ones, not the babies.
