Great Crested Grebe

By Maiwand
Great Grested Grebe ( Podiceps Christatus )
To my mind one of he most attractive birds on the water.
I have been most impressed with the recent Grebe Grebe shots that dear Lillian has posted recently that I thought I would have a look back at some of my older files to see if,perhaps,I could offer up something to remind me of a past session.This is from a time when I was fortunate enough to spot a nesting Grebe.
The bristling of his head and neck plumage was an attempt to scare away a Coot that got a little too close for comfort.
Hope you will enjoy this.
My most grateful thanks to all who gave time to click/ comment/ vote on the Great Grey Owl.Particularly Bill Rookery,Mike Smith,and Hobbit Dave for their User Awards.

Great timing to capture that bristling, and it looks like the back and wing feathers are being raised, too, to tell that coot to keep its distance.

A superb capture of this lovely grebe, Ron.
I'm glad you delved into the depths of the hard drive to find this beauty.
