[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This great northern diver is closely related to the red-throated diver that I posted yesterday. This birds are a lot more shy then the red-throats, and a lot less common. The cries these birds make and the way it carries over water is just amazing

Hello Jeroen,
Great photo of this Gavia arctica in nuptial plumage, vary rare in this plumage by us, thank you for sharing!

Ciao Jeroen. Amazing reflctions and top details with intriogant tones in a great pic.


Very majestic bird Jeroen. You captured it well and framed it perfectly. The POV is right on. I love the colours and the murkey reflections in the water. Wonderful to see this. TFS Trevor

Hello Jeroen,
Very subtle and most beautiful bird-shot. Love the tints, just like a painting.
Great shot indeed and an intersting species!
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Jeroen

This is a remarkable bird indeed worth chasing for. Your picture conveys a sense of serenity, one I can only imagine being broken by their looney cries, with their heads up presumably.
Thanks for sharing.
