Coots on the Water

I was finalizing the pictures from the shoots at the Hirsel Country Park near Coldstream last week and finally got to the pictures of coot running across the surface of the lake. If you see the size of the feet on a coot, you can understand just how they manage to keep on the surface of the lake.

I had waited for some time to get these images. I thought that coot’s squabbled and fought all day long, but the evidence is that that it occurs periodically throughout the day and not continually. The day was sunny and some of the autumn reflections on the water from the trees and the clear sky  were something to see,  I think I have caught the colours  in some of the pictures of the coot running on the water.

I hope you enjoy looking at them.
