[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The great crested grebe (Podiceps cristatus) is the largest grebe in Europe (2). It is a graceful bird, with its long neck, long bill and slender outline. In summer, the adults of both sexes are adorned with beautiful head-plumes (2), which are reddish-orange in colour with black tips (5); there is also an erectile black crown (2). The sexes are similar in appearance, but great crested grebe juveniles can be distinguished by the possession of blackish stripes on the cheeks
Amazing love parade

Bonjour John,
L'éclairage n'est pas suffisamment maitrisé pour valoriser correctement les deux sujets.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
