Default More crested grebes

These are follow-up photos of 'Great Crested Grebes' that I posted earlier this month at http://forums.steves-digicams.com/wi...-hair-day.html

They are indeed fascinating birds.

The most frustrating thing about photographing waterbirds is the 'bloop' factor.

... and they resurface yards away!

C&C welcome.

Bernice, you might have missed the bird but still got a good one of the water droplets...

thanks jj & banksy. Don't think I'd be able to keep up with them underwater jj, they're veritable rockets. Guess I'll just have to be satisfied with what I get above the surface — whether bird or water drop. Usually banksy I don't even get the droplets - just the disturbed water and rings.

Your bird is a beauty. About those water droplet shots; I might have a million of them, or at least the ring ones, plus a lot of shots with just the tail sticking up. Not all are grebes though as we have lots of diving ducks also.
