  1. ELLE ESt magnifique cette poule d'eau j'espère que je ne me trompe pas
    tu sais lorsque je vais en Camargue j'essaye aussi d'en trouver et de faire des photos
    mais mon APN n'est pas énorme et je ne peux pas me reprocher pour faire de plus belles photos
    Mais chez toi on dirait qu'elle est dans ma baignoire
    SUPERBE ENCORE BOB
    Passe une belle soirée

  2. Such lovely photos!
    Not that easy with a black and white bird to capture the light reflection on the feathers!
    Very well accomplished!
    Cheers Bob!

  3. We have scads of coots around here but ours don't have such a lovely white up their head as this (not that I've seen anyway).

  21. Bob, well done on the exposures! Coots are such a challenge because of the high contrast between the whites and darks.

  25. Some corkers there Bob. How much are you having to crop these photos in post production. They still look super sharp however much you have.
