Eurasian Coot

Fulica atra

The Eurasian Coot is recognised by its snowy white bill and forehead shield. The remainder of the bird is dark sooty grey, except for its bright red eye. Immature birds are generally paler than adults with a white wash on the throat. Nestlings are downy, black with fine yellow tips. The head is orange-red and the bill is red with a cream-white tip.

Hi Les,

A very good shot of this Coot, excellent details and colours with a nice reflected shadow, particularly like the clear image of the feet.
TFS have a nice weekend, regards Bill.

Ciao Les, great capture of lovely Fulica atra, fashinating reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Les,
La profondeur de champ ne me paraît pas excellente mais le sujet est relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Gérard
