the crowd of coots
A few folks commented about the crowd of coots off in the distance in the previous post, which prompted me to show this closer look at bunches of the coots taken earlier in the day during a hike at New River. As seen near the opposite bank… this bunch was only part of the overall congregation of Coots.
They actually appeared to be having a grand time out there… splashing and playing, though it seemed as though there was always at least some that kept a pretty close eye on me.There’s no pleasure in getting to be an old coot unless you have some fun along the way.
