Perhaps a bit far-fetched, but these coots remind me of a musical sheet πŸ™‚

  1. Interesting observation. It would be neat to see if someone could “play” a part of this.

  2. Ah, to have the eye of an artist… I see exactly what you mean but only after you pointed it out. How cool is that! Hmm, it’s been a while since I read music but it looks to me like the sheet music to a Sonic Youth song:) great pic as always and I love your interpretation!

  4. I can see that easily…and it’s great that they were all facing the same way, but that’s often the case, I think. Coots are so funny, aren’t they? We have rafts of them accumulating on the lakes around here, and soon they’ll disperse.

    • Coots are funny, and we have a lot of them here in Amsterdam! Even though most of them don’t survive their first year, there’s no canal or pond without coots here πŸ™‚

    • Agree! And this picture only shows a small part of it, I’ve never seen so many coots at the same time before πŸ™‚
