This makes me regret that I didn't take some photos of the coots in nice light this evening! Love the wing stretch with the toes showing through the primaries.

Beautiful image Karl. Superb details as always. Large view a treat and show in detail the rear foot preening.
Make your life spectacular!

Beautiful capture of the leg and wing stretch, Karl. Perfectly timed for the full effect.

Nice timing by you, and balance by the Coot in order to get this stretching behavioral image. I was also drawn immediately to its red eye in addition to the preening by its leg.
