A few months ago I was happy to find an otter nearby. Upon watching him, we noticed he was snacking on something, but what he was eating was a surprise to us all. He was enjoying the great flavorful legs of a coot! We watched him for at least 5 minutes just chew away and seemingly get nowhere on his progress of it, before swallowing it all.

Nice captures!

There's a coot somewhere swimming around in circles.

Ha ha!!! I can see how a coot's foot might make for a perfect chew toy.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I wonder if any coots ever die of old age; I'm guessing not, given the number of creatures that like to eat them. Great photos.
