Great crested grebe










Great crested grebes,
Töölönlahti, Helsinki, 9.7.2013.

I'm quite pleased with how these turned out
even if they're taken against the sun.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  6. You should be pleased with how these turned out ... they are wonderful and tender moments of a spectacular bird. I have only seen the Great Crested Grebe once ... they were way out in our lake, passing through I assume on migration. They are so beautiful that even at that distance they caught my attention. Thank you for reminding me of that special moment.

  7. Great photos of the Grebes - I can never get any detail when I photograph against the sun so your photos are really special.

  10. Lovely Gunilla, isn't the juvenile of this species so unlike anything else, if it wasn't with the adult you wouldn't hazard a guess at what it is....
