Eurasian Coot

Eurasian Coot (Image ID 45672)
CommentI have chosen this for the significant moment captured as the juvenile Coot is begging its parent for food. I particularly like the light here hitting the head of the juvenile and drawing our eye right into the orange head and open mouth. The light has also created some nice reflections which adds to the overall pleasing ambience of the shot. Both eyes are sharp and have catch lights and feather detail is good.
