Many thanks for the comments and clicks on the Woodpecker, Dragonfly and Moth - always most appreciated
Today's shots of this Grebe were taken on whilst fishing in our lake - the little beggar caught more than I did!!! LOL

Modifications and constructive critique are always welcome
Doing extremely well in the Olympics - so far - more to come?

A rather exceptionally good brilliant set of photographs depicting this rather handsome looking Crested Grebe searching for, capturing, and having a spot of lunch, stunning detail and natural colours running throughout. Version III is my favourite,

A really great set with V1 and V2 being my favourites.

Have enjoyed the Olympics, despite thinking I wouldn't. Some amazing competitors.

Good morning Ray! What a super set of images of this grebe. I think in v2 she's eyeing you up and gloating over her superior fishing abilities!! Wink

Well done you a stunning set Ray love the fantastic detail and colours. I met a lovely man from south London out on the marsh he said that i must go and check out Dungeness at some time because it can be very good for birds and wildlife.

Good set Ray They can see them ,we have to guess ,we feed to attract the fish they come and the fish scatter,i dont mind Grebes but cormorants and goosanders are a different matter.Enjoy your fishing lad,i havnt been yet this year.
