American Coot

Here is a image taken on a overcast Tuesday morning at a park. There is a large pond/small lake at this park that is host to a lot of scaup, shovelers and coots as well as geese and whistling ducks in spring. This particular coot jumped out of the water and walked around on the grass close to me, looking for bread handouts no doubt. I thought the grass was a great setting so I managed a few images of it before I got distracted with some gulls. I like the image except for the composition, I needed more room on the bottom and unfortunately I did not have any.
Note to self: compose in camera with more room all around!
