Coot Scootin Boogie

Trying to get some shots of pelicans on the water, I approached the waters edge and scared off these coots. They scared me too, as I didn't see them until they flushed. I found this photo particularly funny, reminding me of the classic cartoon with Roadrunner being chased by Wiley Coyote.

Hannibal, I love this shot. Great work with the camera! Nothing like being able to run on water. Cute caption too.

I have really enjoyed catching up on your blog since my return from elk country.

I know what you mean about subjects being difficult to find at certain times of year, but you have come up with a good variety. I like this shot and the butterflies and asters are also wonderful.

I was pleased to see the photo of the impressive buck. I had to use high ISO settings in the elk photography too at times.

Hi,
This is a lovely shot! I love it and yes it also remind me of the roadrunner and the coyote. Well done, for somebody who was surprised, the shot is really good.
