I was out shooting the powerboats on the Dam and there's a good number of Grebes which are relatively unconcerned by the boats - had the 500mm lens on (7D, f/4.5, ISO100, 1/640) and Grebe was a little too close, so too large in the frame (prefer breathing room and more of the environment in my shots, for context)

Lovely shot despite the closeness @markulous Smiley Happy  It's not too often that you find yourself saying to wildlife "just move back a bit will you" Smiley Happy

Sometimes you just can't win @markulous, when 500 is too, it's normally not enough, but whatever length you've got it's never enough...Smiley Wink

Lovely shot of this bird, you can even see the fine water droplets on his back. @markulous.
