I watched a coot diving at Hyde Park and tried to take photos to capture a good pose. I didn’t really manage that! But I found it interesting to watch how it dives and re-emerges. When it dives in to the water, it goes head first and slides in to the water. However, when it re-emerges, as in the photo below, it just bobs back up without streamlining it’s body, creating quite a lot of splash.
