What a character. Hopefully, his curiosity won't keep him from becoming an OLD coot!
Frank, these are fabulous! So close up and sharp! Very nice series.
Some birds and animals are so curious!! :)Loved the Unexpected Encounter series too.
Hi Frank, I am sure you use a spray or something to make you invisible....lolHow on earth do you get so close up and personal??Great captures.....love the coots eyes.
Super detail on these close ups Frank.
Frank, these are splendid, how great an encounter~
Excellent captures Frank.If only all birds were that co-operative lol
Really great close-up photographs, well done Frank.
Excellent set Frank. I got that with a ringed plover that enter the hood of the 300mm lens and I was looking for it everywhere... I could not understand why it was so black in front of the lens!!
Lovely shots of the coot.
Great shots Frank, these young birds can be very confiding, loved the deer shots in the previous post.
I wish a Coot would be inquisitive enough to visit my patch a bit more often :-)
Hi Frank...That last photo is priceless..how cute is that!! : }
Really great photos Frank, esp that last one! I've only shot coots in the water, at a pond.
Pretty cool, Frank!
Great series of photos. You do get some lovely encounters.
I can assure you there were no special powers, potions etc in getting close to this youngster, it just happened...that's wildlife!Thanks everyone. FAB.
Excellent shots. I'm always a fan of coots.
Let's say, Frank...This lovely Cootknew to be very, very fotogenic...!..Besides his extreme curiousity; so funny..!!GORGEOUS!!!!!ciao ciao elvira
Yes Elvira, I think you may be right...lol. ciao ciao FAB.
There is something about just seeing the coot that brings to mind the expression, "crazy as a coot."
Cheers Chris. Very appropriate.
Great Coot snaps. Really like your 3rd one.
