Re: Weekly wildlifethread: July 8th-July 14th

This coot and her chick look sweeter than they should. In fact the chick was fighting for its live while the shots were taken - as I got aware a few minutes later. This inclined plane was too steep for the chick and the mother didn't seem to notice. This chick lost energy from second to second since it needed all its strength to keep on the same level as its mom. After several minutes crawling uphill the chick gave up and rolled down to the see level which had quite high waves. I tried to keep far away in order to not to frighten them. After half an hour the chick found some rest under the wings of the mother.
