    Superb Arash! Plenty of them here in one of my local lakes...but, never seen one in flight. BG kills. TFS

    A terrific Coot shot but their feet are great, I wish they were not mud covered.
    I am sure you can get one of those..

    hello Arash,

    I don't know what to say, the technique and details are great. the only idea for me is the background is soft / that's my opinion. Thank you

    Are you feeling OK? A coot?!!?? Regardless, its a really beautiful image of an under-appreciated bird, so well done. Love the topside view, and I think the mud on the feet adds interest. Only suggestion would be to clone out the reflected catchlight in the eye.

    Thanks everyone

    @Dorian saw quite a few ducks at MV shoreline, not the exotic kinds but lots of solvers, wigeon and cinnamon teals... will post a few more coots lol
