Wading...Cooper's Hawk?!?

On the way home for the store I headed around my usual loop through a neighborhood to look for ducks. Only a few and they were on the opposite side of the lake. Just before I got to the exit of the subdivision I spotted something in the water. A Cooper's Hawk was actually in the lake up to its backside!

Cooper's Hawk

I have seen other birds wading in the shallows of lakes and ponds but seeing a hawk doing this was...weird. Perhaps it was preparing for a bath or just wanted to cool off. Bet I don't see this type of thing again soon.
