  14. Hi Bob. Coots, with their black bodies and white 'shield' on their heads, are some of the most difficult birds to photograph in my experience - and you nailed it!!

    With my best wishes - - - Richard

  19. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful images of the Coot, not an easy bird to get a decent image from. I find it just as difficult to get a decent image from a dark bird as a white.
    All the best, John
