CommentThis image was made at the Melbourne Water Treatment plant at Werribee Victoria. I have been trying to get a reasonable image of a Grebe for many months but have found these birds particularly flighty. I managed to obtain this image after a number of hours hidden in reeds. There was a degree of difficulty with the reeds moving in front of the lens but ultimately, I achieved what I was looking for in this capture.
EquipmentCanon 7DII. 150-600mm Sigma S. Monopod
LocationMelbourne Water Treatment plant at Werribee, Victoria
