Hello,
This photo is from last year ,taken at Sapanca Lake in Kocaeli.Kocaeli is east neighbour city of Istanbul.I watched this scane again and again.Mum dived into the lake ,catched fish ,holded it in water and waited her chick.She gave the fish always under the water.I think she was teaching her chick "diving and cathing fish".
By the way this is my 100th post:)
Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Grebe
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grebes are members of the Podicipediformes order, a widely distributed order of freshwater diving birds, some of which visit the sea when migrating and in winter. This order contains on a single family, the Podicipedidae, containing 20 species in 6 genera.
Grebes are small to medium-large in size, have lobed toes, and are excellent swimmers and divers. However, they have their feet placed far back on the body, making them quite ungainly on land. They leave the water only to nest, walking very short distances upright like penguins. They can run for a short distance, but often fall over.
Grebes have narrow wings, and some species are reluctant to fly; indeed, two South American species are completely flightless. They respond to danger by diving rather than flying, and are in any case much less wary than ducks.
Bills vary from short and thick to long and pointed; the feet are always large, with broad lobes on the toes and small webs connecting the front three toes. The hind toe also has a small lobe. Recent experimental work has shown that these lobes work like the hydrofoil blades of a propeller. Grebes have unusual plumage. It is dense and waterproof, and on the underside the feathers are at right-angles to the skin, sticking straight out to begin with and curling at the tip. By pressing their feathers against the body, grebes can adjust their buoyancy. Often, they swim low in the water with just the head and neck exposed.
The young, particularly those of the Podiceps genus, are often striped and retain some of their juvenile plumage even after reaching full size.
When preening, grebes eat their own feathers, and feed them to their young. The function of this behaviour is uncertain but it is believed to assist with pellet formation and to reduce their vulnerability to gastric parasites.

Hi Dear Sebnem.
I congratulate your on 100th post. Your collection is really amazing, your heart is really full of love to Nature, photography and to us. My best wishes.

You managed to picture very expressive and interesting scene and you have it with great skillfulness. I like excellent DOF, very good details and exact colours of the heroes of the shot, perfect composition. TFS and best regards.

Hi Sebnem

Another interesting "on the water" photo taken by you!
These cormorant sure are a beauty to photograph and you a great job again here.
This is indeed a very interesting action shot...if indeed the mother taught the young one how to catch the under-water prey, you witnessed an incredible phenomenon.
For the tech-talk, i think it's needless to say that the details are again razor-sharp, the colors are wonderful and the exposure is spot-on :)

Bravo and TFS

Hi Sebnen,
Teaching for the feed!
Very good moment captured here.
Great timing and quickness to get this shot just at the right moment.

Hello Sebnem,
Congratulations for your 100th post! Your contribution is important here and you are a gifted photographer! This is a very nice action shot, captured with great skill. I like to see how these birds interact together. Colors, POV, details and exposure are very good as usual. This is a very nice one again! Thanks!

Oh, I am so envious... I love watching the Great Crested Grebes when I am out fishing. Unfortunately they are very cautious, and when they do pop up nearby, I invariably do not have the camera in my hand. Of course as soon as I reach for it, the grebes dive and come up, a minute or so later, far out in the lake. I've gotten one or two 'ok' shots of adults, but never been able to get one of young that show off the striped markings as well as your photo here.

Lovely composition, good colors and detail. Fantastic that you caught the fish in such detail just as it's being transfered to the youngster. TFS

Each of your 100 pictures on TN is a precious gem, Sebnem.
Your 100th is as beautiful and strong, both thematically and technically, as the rest of them.

This moment of schooling in Nature is well captured and carries a lot of meaning.

Your 101st will be eagerly awaited; then you 102nd, then your 103rd . . . and so on :-)!

Hi Dew,

Very nice shot of the grebe mother teaching her baby how to catch fish. I very much like the supplement text that describes this behavior.

This is one bird I would love to photograph as it is one of the prettiest of the grebe species.

Sorry I have not critiqued this one sooner, there are so many excellent photographers on this site, sometimes it becomes over whelming to keep up with it all. :)

Hi Sebnem

Amazing moment with good DOF.

Hi Şebnem

Sorry, but I did not forget my promise. I am just terribly slow in catching up.

Ok, so I missed the chance to congratulate you in time on your 100th posting, but I am sure I can still wish you many more of the same and well done. You have made a very valuable contribution to this site, not only by means of your photographic material, but also through your prolific activities on the critiquing front. This is a whopper at 13,687 which placed you loose hands in front even kicking dust into the eyes of the "old-timers" or the original members who are still active on the site. Highly praiseworthy indeed.

I like this shot of the mother and the dabchick captured in this natural activity. Your notes clearly explain how the mother was teaching this youngster to hunt and to feed. Lesson like these which the juvenile will need to take care of itself in years to come. Lovely interaction indeed. The composition, POV, colours, details, and exposure are all splendid.

Good work and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Hi Sebnem,
I enjoy this "training" capture very much. A big plus when you can show this type of interaction in the animal kingdom :) Well done mf.

Congrats on your 100th post and this shot is great I love the color on the two grebes. Very excellent. I would probably clone out that dark spot in the upper part of the photo. ;)
