The Lonely Coot

In search of sunrise pictures, I tried the 120 acre fresh water marsh at Aransas Woods. The fog was dreamy, but very few birds. This American Coot was kind enough to swim by so I at least got a few shots. The coots are very common here and can sometimes be found in large groups. When taking off, they beat their wings and appear to be walking on water for a few yards.

This photograph was taken in January 26 in Aransas Woods, Rockport, Texas. (Nikon Z5, 1/400 sec at f/5.3, ISO 11400, 350mm)
