This grebe caught a fish a wee bit too big, so a long struggle followed. At some point it had some algae stuck on his bill too.

It's all about the right moment. Looks like he has a Roach (rutilus rutilus)but difficult to tell at that angle. The algae makes it, with the drips giving a feeling of the bill being hoisted into the air to allow the fish to slither down. Great colours too.

Hallo Jeroen,
Wat een prachtige scene. De futen met jongen zwemmen bij mij voor de deur, maar zoiets heb ik nog niet eerder bij een fuut gezien.
De foto is daarom erg leuk om te bekijken. Kwalitatief valt hij mij een beetje tegen. Hij lijkt wel overbelicht. De details in het water zijn helemaal weggevallen. Je timing was wel perfect. Genomen vanuit een goed standpunt.

Hallo jeroen .
wat een prachtige perfecte moment geklikt ,
goede scherpte .
groetjes gunhan .
