Several pairs of great crested grebes nest on  a lake in Perth. I spent a week observing their behaviour around breeding time as this is when you get the most action. I only photographed in the first two hours after sunrise and before sunset. This image was taken in the morning when the light was still relatively soft. I lay on the grass at the edge of the lake, with a fast shutter speed ready for action. Because I had all focus points activated (the background being sufficiently far away) when the action happened I was able to quickly acquire focus and get the shot. Canon 1D X, EF600mm f/4L IS II USM +1.4x III lens (840mm). 1/6400s @ f6.3, ISO 400.
