Little Grebe in the Sunshine

I usually find Little Grebes to be very timid and they usually dive and swim away underwater as soon as they spot me. However, this little chap was pottering about near the edge of the water at Lake Lothing the other day and, by edging closer every time it was busy, I was able to get closer than usual to get a few shots.

E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Little Grebe in the Sunshine

Very nice. The low sunshine helps to pick out all of the details and gives it a wonderful colour. I usually see them from a hide at full telephoto, so I know what you mean!

Re: Little Grebe in the Sunshine

Many thanks for your kind comments Mark and Peter and for all the 'likes'. That winter sunshine has deserted us now and it is grey and wet here today.

Super shots Ron, they are very tricky to get a decent shot of; you have done a lot better than any of my attempts.

Beautifully detailed shots there, Ron; especially the second with water droplets.
