Little grebe

The little grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis), also known as dabchick, is a member of the grebe family of water birds. The genus name is from Ancient Greek takhus "fast" and bapto "to sink under". The specific ruficollis is from Latin rufus "red" and Modern Latin -collis, "-necked", itself derived from Latin collum "neck".

Hello Manaswi,
Nice photo of these Little Grebe in their natural surroundings. Taken from a good low point of view. The sharpness can be a bit better.

Despite dense vegetation, you have been able to show mother Grebe with its chicks riding her piggy-back in good clarity, Manaswi.
Good to see you posting again.
