Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis)

I have captured this 'Little Grebe' at Marieval Bird Sanctuary, early in the morning. It is commonly found in open bodies of water. Very small and shy bird. So it's very difficult to focus on them, keeping nice POV and composition.
Early morning is the perfect time for birding, because they are mostly active this time. So, wake up early and reach in your birding spot before Sunrise guys to get perfect light and atmosphere.
Keep shooting and enjoy Photography

Hi Srikumar,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the Little Grebe. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
