I struggle (more times than not) to get the exposure dialed-in on coots. They require good light, are almost always in motion, appear almost black in most light and have a deep red eye that isn't always visible. I'm rather proud of this one Though I see many just as good here on Deviant. Finally I can consider one of mine to be one of the good ones. More background would have been nice but you have to take what they give you. They are quite shy here and will always take a wide berth around you or flee altogether.
