The focus is good and you used the Grebe's reflection very well in your composition.

It is a red-necked grebe. Not an easy bird to photograph. I think I would have cropped it a little tighter, but the wider view does look good on this page. Gary
Its a form of grebe without doubt...What I like most is your experimentation in exposure settings...The results are fantastic with a perfectly exposed picture...Absolutely brilliant..Keep experimenting..It really is working out brilliantly.

Red-necked Grebe here in the Old World looks like this. Very good capture with good composition, sharp details and nice colours.

I am pretty sure Nick got it right off. I have only seen the Grebe here on TN and NEVER near here...which is where you are...well only a few blocks away. You do have some secret locations you go to. Keep them. I have some too and it makes it fun. I think other TN'ers would certainly fall in love with our place here nearby Cheney, Kathy,.. It is a place for nature to live and love. Medical Lake is a fine place for those who do not know. I have a few images from there when Jane is able to take rides...only a 15 minute shot but she hurts in the car even with medications....and it is breaking me apart...

Hi, Kathy, again.
Wonderful shot with great rich colours, razor sharpness of the bird image and superb reproduction of the nicely looking water surface. I like impressive 3D-effect, strong horizontal cropping and precise exposure of the image. Well done and kind regards.
Hi Kathy .It looks like a Grebe to me . which you have captured a good close up. natural colours and fine detail in the feathers. was the water that green ?
Well done TFs.

A lovely pov for this shot.
I like the water eye level look.
Wonderful plumage detail and colouration.
The pose is perfect.
