No it's no baby.. it's a nono
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Today my son and I went to the coast trying to find some nice birds. I am beginning to understand what photos that gets any points here on TN so I realize that this is not one of them..... no bright colours, not a close up and not even sharp! |
Well, I decided to post it anyway... ;o)
The reason is that this Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis/Smådopping) is a quite shy bird and it is not easy to get a decent photo of them. I thought that this photo illustrates how tiny this forever diving bird is, compared to a common Coot. It was swimming and diving together with a flock of maybe 20 Coot's and it was my son who discovered it saying:
- How strange, those Coot's have a baby now in mid winter! When we looked closer we saw the real identity of this cute bird.
I took this in raw-format for the first time and converted it in Photoshop CS3 beta to jpeg.
