There Could Be Trouble Ahead .............

By DicksPics
.......... and there was!!

Another sequence of 'Swan versus Grebe' images from my recent visit to Himley Hall in the West Midlands.

This swan really does have an issue with the Great Crested Grebes ........... wonderful to watch and a privilege to photograph!

Not sure the grebe would agree!!.............Smile

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Trouble at t'nest' upload and, especially, to Bob(bobpaige1), Graham(Ericsamson), Steve(sparrowhawk), Dave(mistere), John(lifesnapper), Ron(rontear), Ivor(capto) and Steve(Stephen_B) for their generous awards - much appreciated, as always.SmileSmile

Wonderful sequence again RichardSmileSmile, watched a couple of male Kingfishers disputing territory yesterday, thankfully no fatality, to far away to get a shot but most intriguing.

The Crebe is a brave wee thing considering the difference in size. Quite funny looking too with its legs going like the clappers under the surface - reminds me of Road Runner - beep beep! Rare fun set, Richard. 😎😊

Great action captured in these. Here I thought from the lead and title that the swan was going to save them. But he's the bad guy.
