With this weed I thee wed....

I picked the worst day this year to visit RSPB Rye Meads. The light was dismal and it rained all day. Frankly I wanted to leave but I did not want to carry my camera through soaking rain unprotected. Sio I sat it out for nearly 4 hours until I was so cold I had to make a run back to my car.

 

Here is a sequence of Great Crested Grebe courtship. The pair were some distance off so i had to put my 2x converter on the 600mm lens. Poor light meantt high ISOs to achieve shutterspeed of anything over 200th second. So the quality is not good but hopefully shows how beautiful this courtship rite is.
