Slavonian Grebe

Slavonian Grebe

Lake Annsjon, Sweden. 19 May 2009
EOS 350D & 400mmf4DO + x1.4TC. 1/1600 sec @f7.1 ISO 400

On this trip to Sweden there was a pair of Slavonian Grebe's nesting in a corner of Lake Annsjon, near to the first tower hide. I spent some time on a number of repeat visits trying to get good photos, which wan't easy due to all the intervening vegetation. Also of course sun is a great help but can be in short supply in this part of the world! The final ingredient was the time of day - afternoon was essential to get the light right. And of course the birds had to be close, very close...
