[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This grebe is one of the great beauties of the european bird world. Here in hollan this slavonian or horned grebe is only present in drab winter plummage, but on Iceland you can see them i full colors, especially late in the evening when the sun is low and the light is very golden

have a nice weekend
