    Congratulations to Shelley this week's winner with her image of a Great Crested Grebe family. Well done Shelley.



    What a beauty
    Everything about this pick said...pick me, i'm the winner for IOTW....love the relaxed/ kickin back in the featherbed look ...
    One of the best images I've seen on this site.
    For me this captures a great parenting moment and shows how relaxed birds can be. The image is one of the best I have seen.
    Unbelievable!!
    A truly amazing moment captured
    Shelley, this is a joy! All three birds show us something about a Grebe family - attentive mum, chick taking a ride, and the other chick waiting his/her turn. A wonderful story, expertly photographed.
