I have been watching a Coot nesting for some time now.

Sped over to FBBR tonight and found chicks that can’t be more than 3 days old.  Only a mother could love these kids. UGLY.  It was a difficult shoot. 1). because the refuge was closing. 2). the coots were strongly backlit. 3). They were in thick brush to hide.

I relied in post to bring up shadows.  In ACR turned down the “darks”.  And with a few hundred shots only these three were clear of cat tails……
