Great Coot shot Jim. Really nice water, good details, and low shooting angle make this a very pleasing image. Thanks for sharing. Cheers
Thanks for looking,

Coots are not exactly handsome birds but you made this one look fantastic.
Great angle and light.

Jim, a tough bird to expose for, and you did a fantastic job.  Wonderful perky pose, eye - level POV, and interesting water colors/BG - beautiful work.
