[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little Grebe stopped last weekend in a local pond for a snack before continuing his fall migration flight.

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.

This is a wonderful closeup image with good light and superb details........

Hello Mario,
What a beautiful image with the soft focus except on the bird where it is sharp. The bit on the bird that is oof is also very pleasing as it adds another artistic element to the image. Well done.
