Default Great crested grebe

My attempts at birding continued:





Same setup as before: K5 II + tamron 70-200 + Kenko 2x converter

All c&c welcomed.

I like them, especially considering how frustrating it is to shoot grebes. The only decent grebe I've managed was one that was hanging around a marina, looking for a handout.

I like the shots and the reflections. They don't look like any Grebe I have ever seen. The ones I have seen are really boring and plain.

Nicely done, really like the first one. Has a nice sense of motion to it as well as the reflection. The Grebe looks to be on a mission

Nice shots of a type of Grebe we don't get here, but I wish we did. It is a good looking one.

Are your grebes as shy as ours? Even if not, these are still very fine, clear and appealing images. Even more impressive with the typical shyness of grebes factored in!

Thanks for comments guys.

Not sure if they're shy or not. I was at that nature reserve for the first time and seen only that one race past. Maybe I was just lucky?
