Lovely portrait..beautiful Grebe. tfs.

Hello Jose, dear friend,

Hope life is good. This is indeed a top class, wow photo! The focus is perfect with glistening drops of water on the Great Crested grebe's really colourful feathers, the warm colours of silk, wavy waters, the rippling reflection and the water's buoyancy in rise and fall...classic!
Thanks a lot for sharing...take care....warm regards/Abid

Una foto preciosa Jose, Enhorabuena. Un saludo.


Hello Jose,
Classical portrait of a grebe, but ... better than the others. Strong contrast, splendid light and a fantastic sharpness if we consider the focal length and the converter.
With this kind of picture, we can realize how this species is beautiful.
Tfs, Philippe.
