Thank you for your comments and observations. Yes, I agree with you ; particularly, the end of the beak isn't visible ; but, the reeds are there and the coot "has not be paid" for the photo :-). Otherwise, to me, it is his natural situation.
Anyway, again, thank for your comments, helping us to improve.
Have a good day.
European Coot (Fulica atra L.) (5)
