Australia has been asked to avoid non-essential travel. I was out early before the announcement was made and was delighted to see these funky little Eurasian Coot chicks.

Yes they were originally decoys for hunting. People started collecting them when I was a little kid, at least the fancy "realistic" ones. On the other hand, people used to make them out of crazy materials like mud-stuffed bags or tires, contraptions you would never mistake for a bird but apparently the waterfowl did not know any better.

Decoys are still used just not made of wood any more.

Cormorants - Little Pied and Great.
A7R III, FE400/2.8 & 1.4 TC
In similar light the A7 is running at 12,800 ISO cp half that for the A9 and the dynamic range is noticeably less.
