Default baby coots are weird-looking!

stopped by my new favorite "park" this afternoon, and within 5 minutes i had these shots of a family of American coots... there were two adults and two chicks, though i only got shots of one of them with the babies. the chicks reminded me of the classic nutty professor, the one with the bald pate and a ring of disheveled hair around the back of his head, bulging eyes and a slightly crazed expression... these were shot from perhaps 30 feet away...
