Hi Dan. Your timing with this shot was spot on. With sharp detail and rich colours. Such luck to get the male feeding the young . well done TFS.

Well timed capture of a wonderful moment, nice natural history work.

Hello Dan,
Last spring I had almost the same photo, but not so close. Very beautiful in great sharpness and details. Good timing in pleasant light and colours. Very good choice of composition.

Hi Dan,
Excellent shot from all perspectives, including exposure, POV and details. However I am unable to figure out what is the diagonal slight line on the bottom left starting from just below the mother grebe's neck and going till the bottom left corner of the pic?

What a wonderful scene you have captured, Dan.
Great timing!
I can't believe the little one is actually reaching out from his cozy spot on mom's back.
I love the markings on the chick.
The POV is perfect.
Rich colors on the birds.
TFS. : )

Hello Dan,

You have captured a very interesting moment with the bird feeding the baby. Image is very sharp showing well the birds. Small bird pattern can be observed in great details.

Thank you for sharing,

Oh, how wonderful to see this image.
Excellent capture Dan, with dad feeding baby like this. The timing was just right. Good focus and capture

Great shot. Not always easy to capture an interesting attitude with birds, but this really captures the imagination. Great work and technically spot on.

Outstanding portrait.That portrait I have never seen.Good father.I expect that baby food.
