    When the grebes are feeding there young they will often bring them fish that are a little to large as is the case with this one !

    After several failed attempts and the youngster dropping it a few times the adult eventually ate the fish :)

    Very appropriate title and a cracking image at that too.

    Though does look a tad flat so maybe a tweak needed to 'give it a lift' :)

    No way! The chick will try to eat what ever mom gives it.
