Great Crested Grebe chick (Podiceps cristatus)

It was nice today, no clouds and no wind, just plain ole sun, lovely. So, I went out and captured the Great Crested Grebe + chicks, as I had left it too late.

  1. Oh, sweet baby! It always charges me up to view your beautiful photographs. I wonder if grebes only have one baby, or perhaps they others succumbed to predation. Thanks for sharing!! You show me so much that I would otherwise never see.

    Adult grebe is very pretty feathers on the head, but the chick also looks interesting. Yours.

  30. Muy bien el recurso de desenfocar el primer plano para centrar la mirada en el pollo situado más lejos. Un abrazo,

    Very good resource to blur the foreground to focus the eyes on the chicken located further away. A hug,

  31. Really beautiful. you were at the right time in the right place Bob. that little one already knows quite a big fish working away. Great that you got it for your lens.
