Coot On Ice
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Nikon D850 : 500mm F/5.6 PF)
Brilliant Dave, they are very territorial and noisy birds.
Look at those claws!
Oy , can l have word ! Now I'm spokes coot for this lake and I've been asked to say we're getting pretty fed up of you lot banging about on the bank , glodding bricks in , swimming and the like . It were a nice quiet little lake this once . Fishermen ! , don't get me started on fishermen . A worm at one end and an idiot at the other , that's what I say . Now clear off .
That's a Peggy Mount glare, is that.....if she says it's twelve o'clock, it's twelve o'clock, and no arguing! Brilliant photo!
He stands out well on the icy lake in his best suit. A double spin would be effortless...especially with those feet!
There's something comical about this bird, can't put my finger on it but is it as Poet sums it up. That look says it all or is it "my feet are frozen"
Looks like he's saying, "don't come any closer" Dave..Brilliant photo.
Poet, you have just had us in stitches....I read your comment out to the man in my life in my best Lancs accent & he nearly fell off his chair ! WW does give us some cheer, it was DTease's turn yesterday.
Really good photo to boot Mr Oy.
Another cracker Dave, you really do like the wildlife.
It could be a Kiwi if it had a different coloured feathers, and different beak and different shaped feet
“Yer cum aw this way fer o paddle un aw us yer get is frozen feet!”
In fact it would be a different bird altogether! In reply to Mick's bizarre suggestion.. I was wondering when he'd pipe up
Mick. it could be a car if it had doors, windows, four wheels and an engine !!!!
I do think Blob and a DTease would make a good comedy duo!
I'm in stitches at Blobs post! ;o)))
Don't answer to Mick , he spoils other peoples post.
What Im on about is the shape and size, if you don't believe me go and look at you tins of polish
If that Coot was a Budgie, it would probably say "Liverpool Bus"!
Mick, stop spoiling the site because peoples photos are better than yours.
Mick behave yourself , your upsetting Arthur...
I don't know how we've arrived at tins of shoe polish and (s)coots on ice!
Blob and DTease and Poet have had me in stitches today, Dolly dear! I keep going back to the post for another giggle! We need something to make us laugh at the moment.
It's the best laugh I've had all day - my dear!
Blob's comment is priceless but Mick made it possible... as usual ...!
