On a Platter

Blessed Sunday =) 024

Just a few minutes after capturing the image of the buzzard that I posted yesterday, I came across this young Great Crested Grebe on the canal who seemed quite happy to float there as I took photographs…the parent bird was keeping an eye on the situation from a distance though neither bird seemed overly concerned with my presence… 😉

As the bright and vibrant colours of summer begin to fade, the plumage of water birds like the Great Crested Grebe, although still retaining a remnant of the breeding plumage, also begin to gradually pale into a more wintery style of raiment.
