These were taken this morning. We have a heat wave and the ice is backing off a bit. The birds are loving it.

Horned Grebe and Mallard for size comparison

Certainly nothing I did other then be lucky. I was high on the wall and shooting down for a burst mode when he dove. These guys are fish catchers and go under often and for fair amounts of time. They twist and turn under water. I doubt I will ever be close enough to get this again as the fishermen are coming out now that the ice is melting. Even without fishermen this was very close for these birds. But, just in case, I will keep my polarizing filter with me to get as good an underwater shot as possible.

These guys look like balls of fluff sometimes. The shot below may be my favorite, although it is not at all exciting. (Maybe you had to be there to appreciate it though.)

Thanks for looking and commenting. And thanks rafinmelb also.

Great series of shots on the dive Happy and you're right you have to be lucky to get shots like that but you also have to put in the time trying until you finally do.
You did not have to be there to enjoy that last shot.
