Great crested grebe at Salthouse Point, Gower

While trying out a few image options, I thought I had got a mark on the lens or dirt in my view finder as a dark shape appeared. When I refocused the lens it came apparent that it was a Great Crested Grebe swimming by in the twilight. This is where digital photography really is a killer technique and the first plus point I noticed; its low light pick up is outstanding. With film I probably wouldn’t have attempted this image as to get this level of quality in the final result was nearly impossible. Next time I hope the bird comes a bit closer!
