CommentThis Eurasian Coot was swimming towards a juvenile bird exercising first diving skills when he noticed my lens. I took several shots as he was entering the shady area because I liked the colour and texture of water in front of him. The low perspective and mirroring of bird's head allowed me to make the final decision to enter this image for the competition.
