Touching scene of this mother coot feeding the hungry baby! Very vivid scene and well framed. The little lacks of sharpness here don't bother me, here the "action" is more important. Beautiful stone covered with yellow lichen.
My best regards

Nice catch with the 400mm. I love the shots of birds when it is mother and child. Those are rare and hard to get. I am sure the 400 helped.
Enjoy your summer, it was 8 degrees Fahrenheit here this morning.
This lens is a good one but it needs good light and for me, using monopod with it gives better result. We have those birds here as well but I don't see them often... This is an interesting capture and I like this little hungry one! Well seen!

Great shot of the mother coot and young... Capture was timely and well done... detail and composition are great. It is refreshing to look at a good looking coot instead of seeing some "old coot" in the mirror every morning... ;) TFS Janice.
BTW: My shoulder is fine now and surgery was not necessary... thanks for your concern. God bless. :)

I like the POV, sharpness & details of the subject. The lighting & composition for the Australian Coots are superb. TFS.

I think coots are a hoot!
Nice capture of parent about to feed a hungry child.
