Coot at Foothill Park

I haven’t posted in over a month.  I’ve just not felt like I had any photos worth posting.  But perhaps I’m being too judgmental.  In November I visited Foothills Park again with a friend (a park in Palo Alto).  There was a single coot who seemed to be unafraid  and let me get close.  She/he swam for awhile, and then came out of the water onto dry land.  Look at those feet!!  Coots look like ducks but they aren’t ducks.  They are part of the rail family.  Here are 2 of my photos of the coot.
