come on now... smaller please!

By Lillian  
The Crested Grebe was offering a fish that was way too big
this pair take it in turn to baby sit the five babies on their back
while constantly fishing for them... where do they live?
on a fishing farm!!! great thinking on their part
have at least five pairs there.
So have become a member... and having a great time there
and I even take my chair along!!

video link to show what happened to the fish

Version... naff background photo but shows all babies off in water

Thanks everyone for comments and awards on Mr Woodpecker

Looks to me like they're sinking, Lillian! GrinGrin Two delightful captures Smile
Strange, but when I click on that YouTube link it just takes me to all the videos I've uploaded on there, no grebes or fish....
