GREAT CRESTED GREBE BELLY FLOP

Just for a laugh I thought I would post the following images, not great but mildly amusing of a Great Crested Grebe (podiceps cristatus) coming into land



Why the hurry? Why getting all in a flap?................................................................................................

  4. Great images Douglas, A bird with great poise and elegance when on the water, it's funny how all that goes out the window when other things cloud the mind!!

    1. Thanks, they do look graceful and even more stunning in flight sadly nature plays it's "joker" in the pack and makes sure it's landings are clumsy and awkward. :)
