Like a watery version of the phoenix, this juvenile kingfisher rises up with prize in bill, to a less than impressed audience of coots.
Coot fight. These occurred throughout the day but one thing I noticed, that claw must be moving because at 1/2500 or even 1/4000th shutter speeds, I can't freeze it. Someone else pointed out there is always a 'referee' coot as well.
American Wigeon just after take off.
Osprey incoming. Now if only there was a fish in those talons.
