Great Crested Grebe
Comments(2) # Great Crested Grebe london e10

I've been trying to get a decent shot of one of our local Great Crested Grebes since the summer when I spied the pair with littl'uns riding on their backs. They're much shier than most of the birds around here. I still haven't managed to get what I'm really after but the mist on this early morning disguises the camera shake in this shot enough I think (you try hand-holding a 5D with a 400mm lens at 1/25s with only your rickety old push-bike to rest it on).
