Grebe Reflection

I haven't yet managed to get a good shot of the Red-Necked Grebe (Podiceps grisegena), but I like how nicely this one reflected on the water surface.

Update: since a few people have asked, I would like to affirm that the reflection of the bird is real, but I did however blur the water surface slightly to enhance the effect.
