Great crested grebes

I saw these elegant grebes at Carsington Reservoir, a favourite place of ours for birdwatching. It was a  fairly overcast day, and the colours were generally muted, but the white feathers on the grebes' faces shone as they flicked their heads in unison. I don't usually paint birds, but I'm quite please with the way this has turned out.
