Went back again to try and get the grebes doing their mating dance, didn't get what I wanted but still pleased with what I got. Have done a write up on the blog and added 12 more images to the Great Crested Grebe gallery page on the website.

Some of my favourites from so far this spring...

Beautiful set to add to the many great photos on your website -- wonderful light and color and sharp detail. I've only seen the grebe's mating dance on video and hope to see it in the wild one day -- a spectacular show.

Gorgeous images Danny, especially the second one. Had a quick look at the web-site, also very nice. Thanks for posting these.
