17_10_10_Coot with Chicks

I was fascinated by the way the parent feeds the chicks. Something like tongs appears to be extended from inside the beak to hold the food.
Detail best seen on black.

I agree, looks stunning on black, fantastic details in the hen and chicks, along with the sheen and ripples in the water. Great shot.

Coot chics don't come anywhere near the top of the cute ladder. Good shot.
