[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These phalaropes are universally present in Iceland. Adorable little birds where the roles of the sexes is reversed. The male is the brown one and takes care of the eggs and chicks, while the female i the brightly colored. This is a male the I hear 'plop' into the water next to me while watching some grebes. Totally not shy at times they were less then 3 feet away from me

Hi Jeroen,
Zo, terug van weg geweest. Ik hoop dat het je goed bevallen is daar, vast wel.
Fantastische foto in alle opzichten. Dat was echt een buitenkansje.
Groet uit het Brabantse land,

Hello Jeroen,
Remarkable photo with exceptional clarity and details. Wonderful sharpness and nice contrast against the water. Excellent clarity and very good shoot from low POV. Very interesting bird living north.
