The lesser grebes unveiled

I’d been trying to get the lesser grebes diving, just that perfect shot with the tip of the beak touching the water, failed attempts too many to count, blink and you miss it, but here’s why, the next three photos were taken at one sixteenth of a second intervals, not much time to sort that out, the first shot shows there’s no clue it going to dive, then gone.

You could spend a long time failing to get thet shot, you see, it has to be from the side, with a prfect refection too. I fear it may never happen.

On another subject, Does anybody know why this grey heron sprayed water from it’s beak? It did it many times, it didn’t have a fish or seem to be going for one,

Fish may come up in the rain..??
Perhaps somebody can let me know.
