About the photograph
I spent a casual day at Swanpool, feeding and watching the birds as well as talking to my friends from uni. These coot chicks were quite brave as they stayed relatively close to where we were. I laid down to get the lowest possible vantage point and this adult coot brought some seeds that other people were feeding the birds. The light and my position was perfect and I feel privileged to have captured such a tender moment between these two birds.
