The larger cousin of the Little Grebe (from image 090), image 091, is a pair of winter plumaged Great Crested Grebes. In full summer plumage they are spectacular looking with their orange fluffy headcrests. Low level photography and still water is always a bonus!
Great crested Grebe, Podiceps cristatus, Worcestershire.
I really like trying to get as low as possible so I am at eye level with the subject I’m photographing as it provides a more intimate image. Image 089 is an image of a Coot where I was almost at water level with the Coot… any lower and my camera would have needed to have been waterproof! The lower you can get the better!
