CommentI like the solitude & peace of this photo, concentic circles of ripples form a pastel contrast to the dark feathers.
(But within seconds a large eel leapt from this calm lake & tussled with a the coot in a huge flurry of splashing. This photographer, carefully balanced on a rock was also startled & alas did not change the camera settings quickly enough to capture the drama.
Result - the bird escaped & the eel went hungry.)
