Coot-style icewalk

A sure-footed coot heading for some open water on the partly frozen river after pecking around for some odd bits of edible flotsam and jetsam.

A camera malfunction got me "grounded" for at least another week. So I'll have to put up with using the spotting scope or binoculars until I get it back.

    Great shot! Well capture of this big bird in motion on the frozen water with food in his beak. Wonderful colors and light.

    Even them big feet are no good in the ice :-) Lovely and funny shot

    Die riesen Füsse eignen sich wenig zum Schlittschuhlaufen :-) Eine schöne Szene, sehr gut eingefangen.

    Good capture of the action that is going on.
    I hope you don't have to miss your camera too long.
