… and what enormous toes they are! another shot of this gorgeous Eurasian coot chick. When it had had enough of all that swimming around with mum and dad it just made its own way to the nest and climbed out.
Taken at Carenup swamp, north of Perth, Western Australia.
Nikon D700, 500mm (hired) lens, ISO1250, f/6.3, 1/400 sec, -1 step, tripod. And it washandy to have a walkway into the swamp which gave me a vantage point.
