this is an amazingly well detailed shot of this coot certainly one of the best I have ever seen.One week ago I purchased the same camera that you have used for this remarkable photo and if this is any indication I think that my shots will improve markedly all things being equal that is.Fine detail,colour and focus make this coot come alive in a way I have never seen before now.Best of all is the focus is on the bird"s head giving the definitive view of this fascinating creature face.Thanks for sharing this coot with us all.

Very good portrait of the American Coot. Everything is top notch. I like the drops on the forehead. It looks that 40D works very well! TFS

Hi Adam, great close up of this Coot. This Coot is far more attractive than ours here in the UK. I like the colouring on the beak and the pin sharp eye. Very well exposed on both whites and blacks. Great light on the water drops. Great pov and dof. A very nice composition all round.

Excellent close up of this american coot!
I like the pose, and excellent details got all over, on the beak and dark plumage.
You managed pretty well the exposure and the available natural light.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Perfect exposure that has revealed excellent sharp detail in the black head plumage Adam.
Excellent color and POV, that red eye looks fantastic up close :)
