a few shots from this weekend,
the little fellow is the young of an (Eurasian) coot.
This has been one of the few times I've seen them.

Quote:
Coots can be very brutal to their own young under pressure such as the
lack of food. They will bite young that are begging for food and repeatedly
do this until it stops begging and starves to death. But if the begging keeps
going, then they may even bite so hard that the chick is killed.

Lucky enough there seems to be enough food in this pond.

talk about a face only a mother could love! although from the Wikipedia clip, even that's open to some debate! :lol: nice shots, nonetheless!
