really nice! love the silvery ripples.

i was able to see my very first american coots in december. when i had visitors here, we stopped at a local lake and i saw these odd birds for the first time. now, to see them up close and on land... :)

Love it! Even without seeing the white beaks, I just knew these were American Coots! I saw them yesterday at our lake and they are quite fast swimmers. Congrats on a beautiful photo!

Brian...Buddy and I went out shopping for new feeders and new and different food for them in an attempt to attract some different species. I kept thinking we need you alone to advise us. even got us a new replacement bird bath. I am sososso excited. Cannot wait to see who comes in for a visit so I can start learning about more birds. Before I die I really do want to add "birder" to my list of accomplishments. Tis picture of the ducks with they sharp shadows on the ripply waters is beautiful. Happy New Year. genie

How lovely. They are enjoying their own world, and providing enjoyment for us. Love the reflected trees too.
