Hello Andrew,
This is a beautiful capture of this nice bird. Exposure, composition, details and tones of colors are just perfect. I love the fact that you let some space for its reflection in the water. This is a very nice post. Thanks,

Oh I am so jealous, lol... I've been trying for years to get close shot of a great crested grebe, but all the ones I see seem to be camera shy... never coming close until I put the camera away.

Excellent POV and very nice composition. Colors are well saturated, detail is extremely fine. Lovely reflection in the water. Really, really nice.

TFS, Mish

A well composed picture with good sharpness and fine details, the lighting and colours are very nice.
I like the droplets on the back and the nice reflection.
Very well done.
