James - Thanks so much! Lens used was Tokina 400mm ATX AF - a very sharp little lens, especially when there's enough light to keep it to F8 or so. Small enough to use hand held as well...

John - Thanks for your kind words.

Patty - So glad you liked these.

WCKSer - Sure is interesting how same species of bird may have very different behavior patterns in different locations. Some of our coots are very shy (especially on the water), but more are bold (especially on land). Will post some photos later taken with a 100mm lens!
