The water was so still and this Grebe was diving for its breakfast.

Very nice smac! I have never seen one of these birds before (sheltered life ). This one looks very young - is that the case?

I am not sure myself, but from all the books I've looked in I would say it is probably a young adult. They all looked cute and youngish.

It would say I was about 50 to 100 feet when I took these pictures. The refuge were I take most of my bird pictures has a six mile auto loop you can drive and if you stay in your car the birds don't seem to mind you being there. Obviously some are more skiddish ( the Pheasants, in particular) than others but as a rule you can quietly motor up and get off a bunch of shots before they move off.

All the best,
smac

Nice ones smac. Looks like the one I saw about a week ago at a park near my work place.
