Four floating crested grebes take in the sights on a lake in Perth

The latest Australian Geographic Flickr group photo of the week.

Congratulations to this week’s AG Flickr group member Athena, for her image ‘Great Crested Grebe family’


“The Great Crested Grebes (Podiceps cristatus) are the most photogenic of all the waterbirds,” says Athena.

 “This year because of the unusual summer rains in Perth they bred late into the summer, so I had quite a few opportunities to sit next to the lake and watch them. Both male and female are vigilant parents, feeding and carrying their chicks around on their backs.”
