    Beautiful, Heather. The little babies look so adorable, it’s interesting, with Grebes, how the little ones initially don’t look anything like the parents. Beautiful shot.

  • Thank you so much Kat for the lovely comment x

    I’ve tried photographing these at the lake, but didn’t get anything anywhere near as delightful as this. Beautifully done.

  • Oh thank you Eve.Very lucky on this day as it was windy and the Grebes came in for a little protection.And they were so cute x
