|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hopefully, I got this right, this time. There were some lovely grebes sailing over Hyeongsan river. But were so distant that my toy scope could not produce anything significant other than a hazy outline. |
I had to settle for some less shy variety. Even, though I am not entirely happy with the shot, I decided to upload it before I take to the air again from land.
I was totally confused while finding the name of the bird - mostly because it looked like a duck - which it is not. But I was not aware - until - by chance I got the hint from another photo which shows the foot under water. Despite this I was not getting close to it partly because - in my country I have only seen swamphens & moorhens and white breasted waterhen - commonly called ডাহুক outnumbering the former two. Although, coot is available.
You might be laughing at my struggle with the coot and I myself knew it is a common bird here. But the name eluded me for quite some time.

Lovely image with this gorgeous Eurasian Coot. The details and focus are perfect. Very good shoot from a excellent POV and with perfect exposure and timing.
