    Grebe update

    Sorry I have been a bit slow. Work has been a bit hectic so I have not had a chance to post Mondays shots nor get any further images.
    Monday one more was hatched and we still have one to go. In the shots below you may notice the babies that were born first are starting to fuzz up and the one still looks slick, he is the youngest.

    Sorry about the slight softness, these are near 100% crops, can't do much about the water distance between us.

    Let me up!

    Paul those are wounderfull images because: a)the distance, b)how did you find them,c)the timing and d) because they are my favorite ducks! The babies get a plumage that resemble jammies and I also like the sound this specie makes.

    Thank you Bobo, Mark and Steve. They have been fun and interesting to watch over the past month. I will get some shots maybe tomorrow but I am affraid that may be my last chance as they will leave the nest middle of next week and once that happens they will become very shy and secretive if they wish to avoid the eagles.
    Who knows one may come in hunting now and again.
