Great Crested Grebe by carolmw

Great Crested Grebe

Taken at Daventry Country Park.This little bird kept diving for fish,and would keep appearing quite a distance away from his dive.There are a great many waterbirds on the reservoir.Daniel and I walked all around the reservoir,which takes in lovely country paths and meadow area,so there is a great variety of wildlife to look out for,a photographer's paradise!
Many thanks for all your great comments and Favs,always much appreciated.
Beautiful capture, especially love the patterns in the water, Grebes aren't always easy, as soon as you line the shot up they tend to dive :-)

Love the glossiness of the water.

Lovely capture - they are very difficult to catch, especially as they swim so far when they're underwater that it's easy to lose track of them.
They swim very low in the water, too, don't they?

Lucky you! Often see them but only briefly and a way off! Great capture.
