Hallo Christophe
Welcome to Trek Nature, I trust you to have a wonderful journey and make lots of friends with whom you can share and share alike. These Great Crested Grebes are beautiful birds with lovely qualities to admire and appreciate. I like the intimate moment you caught of these two in the water. The colour of the feathers is beautiful and I also like the way one can see the chest of the one and the back of the other. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

great scene for this couple of Podiceps cristatus.

The picture is pretty sharp with a decent DOF and the colours are nice and natural.

Bonjour Christophe,
Une image originale et drôle..cela fait plaisir à voir! Un bon début sur TN!
J'ai vu que tu as montré la même image sur TE, cela n'est en principe pas permis. Il faut choisir l'un ou l'autre site pour la même photo. Le risque est que l'image soit effacée.
Meilleures salutations

Ciao Christophe,
benvenuto su TN, splendida questa tua prima immagine con la parata di corteggiamento di questa coppia di Svassi, ottima nitidezza e splendidi colori, perfetta la scelta del taglio compositivo verticale che con il riflesso contribuisce a dare dinamicità all'azione e creare un buon impatto visivo.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

HI christophe,
moment well captured of these dancing birds. Very sharp details shown and the feature of the birds are well seen.
Lovely presentation and the colours are nice too.


Christophe, this is a great shot of the grebes. Thanks for commenting on my 'Protecting Her Chicks' photo. Actually the heron got all of the chicks over the course of a few days. Have a great day, Bill
