Greedy Grebe..

The picture tells a lot of where I am at the moment. Yes, in the 'Biesbosch'! One of Holland's most beautiful National Parks. We came across this grebe with his lunch while entering this fantastic area. Watched the whole fish, that was still alive, go down, wriggling and all! Incredible! He must have an adjustable jaw or something! The Grebe didn't even belch... :-)

 

Although the weather was awesome the last two days, today we're stearing the "Tembo" back into the heart of the Biesbosch in the pouring rain. Add that up to the fact that I just sent the sunhood of the 500mm to the bottom of the Biesbosch (MG if you dàre to laugh!!) while trying to shoot a Kingfisher that only pulled long noses from a mile away, I think I'll just pour myself a big glass of red...
