Great Crested Grebe | Podiceps Cristatus

Great Crested Grebe | Podiceps Cristatus

This delightful, elegant waterbird with its ornate head plumes almost led to its extermination in the UK as hunters collected the feathers for hats and decoration. These shots were taken in the grounds of Hampton court, London...but a rare find also in Hong KOng, where I took the last shots...

in hong kong in the late evening as the sun was had gone, and the bird was a long way away. Bright sunlight can really make a difference for some photos, especially where you have splashing water...
