American Coots run and flap to get airborne in an splashy display.
Sometimes they are just relocating, as they did in this case, to get away from the edge where I was walking.
They quickly settled down into another small group further out in the pond.

Beautiful silver look in water
Thanks, Hans. The sun was behind them, and harsh so I wasn’t expecting much. In the end I was happy with how they turned out.
Walking on water…. 🙂 Great shots
