Small in the frame pair of Grebes. Never give up if your subjects are not close,there is always a shot to be had!

They did come close a few times but failed to display for us. Still...was awesome to see them and I'll be back soon. It was pretty grey at this point but this helped get a nice even exposure . Such an elegant water bird.

Had a cracking session out by a Loch this morning with a good friend. We were hoping to get the Grebes courting but they had other plans... not much action at all and the only bit of displaying that went on was distant... They birds seemed to be conserving their energy as it was bitterly cold and almost arctic in the wind! Weather and light was changing by the minute. The water level was lower than normal so I could not quite get eye to eye even though I was on my belly!

A wee trip to a Loch produced lots of superb sightings but not so many images, Managed a few of the GCG's . This one is a little soft but i liked the pose . They chose to keep their distance most of time... Good day out and about though:O)
