Mama with her young. This is the first time I have seen baby coots. They were very hard to get a lone picture of through all of the foliage. These guys sat in a bit of an opening for a second and I got my chance.

Fabulous setting and subject material with the parent feeding her young. I like the vegetation in front, it adds to the picture. Superb Mark!!!!!

As to Mali, there is no such thing as "ugly little buggers" in the bird world ;)

This is a heart melting shot Mark and beautifully captured through the reeds.
 
Congratulations on this sighting. The little ones are so cute and colorful. A great shot!
