Hope you all don't mind 4 photo's of the same subject, I just wanted to share this moment.

It was fascinating to watch this Great Crested Grebe diving for fish. They must be amazing under water swimmers as the distances they were covering underwater were amazing and they would stay under for 20-30 seconds. This one popped up with the biggest fish. The grebe was banging the fish against the water surface hard continuously and what appeared to be like drowning the fish. Violently thrashing his head from left to right. After about a minute watching this he managed to manoeuvre the fish into the right position and then swallowed it whole. He then carried on diving for more. All very exciting stuff to watch.

I took these with my 2x converter. I get very good IQ using this but the AF is very sloooowwww....
