Today’s photo is another one of a coot. Previously, a coot photo was one of the bonus photos, but this one is closer – and deserves it’s own day! They are less skittish than some ducks and other aquatic life, although they will gently swim away when they sense you’re coming closer. I’ve heard one sad fact about them: they are a favored snack of the bald eagle, and alligators like them, too… When they are out of the water, they have the feet that almost seem too large for their body.
