King Of The Coots [Explored]

Viera Wetlands



I wouldn't normally take a photo of an American Coot. After all, they winter here by the hundreds of thousands and they always seem to get in the way of other birds that I want to shoot. But when this guy got up on this little island and began doing a wing flap, I just couldn't resist.


Klaus would be proud.
