Artist's Description

Hoge Dijk-collection
Amsterdam-Abcoude, the Netherlands

Great Crested Grebe ( Wikipedia ) – seems to be fascinated by it’s own reflection in the water… :)

Great Crested Grebe is on the IUCN list of threatened species – Status: least concern.

Earth Keepers
Because of the beauty shown in this picture:
SAFE our waterlands and PROTECT our birds!

The “Hoge Dijk” (High Dike)
is a natural area in the South of Amsterdam SouthEast, adjacent to Abcoude ( Google Maps )
There are large water parts and lots of reed lands and low bushes, and wooded area’s.
Just like the Reed Corner (Riethoek) it’s a very precious natural ecosystem close to the highly populated neighbourhoods of Amsterdam SouthEast.
