Cute coot chick!

By leeg  
Taken at Stover in Devon. One of five of the ugliest chicks I've ever seen :biggrin: His parents love them obviously. This one climbed onto this half submerged log for a couple of frames. Cloned out a few branches in the BG but it was pretty black anyway!!

Comments welcome as always
