Wow...I never saw a coot doing this...nice capture.
This year I saw a coot duckling submerge for a long time for(I think) eating something...it was so cute and awesome!

Thanks, Chiara. It's very difficult to get close to the young Coots, but they look almost the same as the Moorhen chickens [link]
