Do You Think I'm Coot?

Wednesday 13th April 2011



The coot is a cousin of the beautiful moorhen...


It is such an elegant bird... with its beautiful black plumage and pure white beak...


I really enjoyed photographing the coot at the upper reservoir at the Waterworks in North Belfast...


Swimming near the dead bullrushes...


I tried to get a closeup of the coot... 
although its plumage is black it looks silvery grey in the sunlight...


I love this photo of the coot with the ripples surrounding it...


After paddling around in the bulrushes for a while...


It headed off to meet a couple of is friends...


And I definitely think the coot is more than a little cute...

I agree...the coot is cute. You have a lovely blog. If GFC is working again, I will be a new follower.

Thanks for the visit today to The Gardening Life.

 

Hmmm...you don't have a means of following your blog. I'll have to bookmark it instead.

 

Beautiful photos! :)

 

Nice shots of the coot. It is kinda cute but those feet.... :-D

 

I've never seen a coot before. These are dreamy shots!

THE BEST WATER

With water they say that the best
Is clearest when put to the test;
No sediment there
To cause wear and tear—
Pure water sure beats all the rest!

I think they are very cute. That last photo of the three together is just beautiful.

 

Great shots of the coot! I don't ever remember seeing this bird before although I know they do exist in North America.
