Great Crested Grebe

By DicksPics
Today's upload was taken this morning in the grounds of Himley Hall in the West Midlands, once the home of the Earl of Dudley.

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Private Playing Field' upload and, especially, to Mike(mike9005), Steve(Stephen_B) and Carol(canoncarol) for their wonderful awards.

I hope your weekend is going well - it's a beautiful sunny day here in the west Midlands.

Super capture of this lovely bird, complete with nice ripples and reflections. It looks in a rush to get somewhere at full speed ahead.

This image of the Grebe is just stunning Richard with pretty good sharpness but the reflection and the texture and ripples lift this shot to another level not to mention the authentic colour rendition. Instantly gave this a GE award when I saw it. KR Phil
