|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Little Grebe with fall colors in the local park.|
The pied-billed grebe (Podilymbus podiceps) is a species of the grebe family of water birds. Since the Atitlán grebe (Podilymbus gigas) has become extinct, it is the sole extant member of the genus Podilymbus. The pied-billed grebe is primarily found in ponds throughout the Americas.
Pied-billed grebes are small, stocky, and short-necked. They are 31–38 cm (12–15 in) in length, with a wingspan of 45–62 cm (18–24 in) and weigh 253–568 g (8.9–20.0 oz). They are mainly brown, with a darker crown and back. Their brown color serves as camouflage in the marshes they live in.

Amazing sharpness and beautiful colors
An OUTSTANDING IMAGE to me.The details have come out very well in this image.The water drops are looks nice on the feathers.
Excellent focusing job. I too have used the Canon 1.4 converter ... and, it's not that easy to focus well.
Need a lot of patience + the co-operation of the subject.
Great quality image.
Love your notes too.
Friendly greetings from Mario in Canada.
