Hi Tom,
beautiful is what this shot is.You have caught this little bird with such nice clear detail and colour.These little horned grebes are so much the kind of birds I enjoy seeing and I'm happy you are lucky enough to have them in the area where you live as well.Yesterday I was going to do a photoshop on your upload but you killed it,I rather liked that image above your waterfall photos uploaded beforehand,oh well such as life.I still have that image if you are interested just the same.The only thing in this photo that could of been better is if you had of included the full refection of this bird's head in the water.Thanks for sharing this pretty little grebe with us,a new favorite for me. Bob
