Grebe Reflection by KeldBach Grebe Reflection by KeldBach
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.

I love this. I love how the trail behind the grebe is blue instead of just a murk. The green is beautiful, and the reflections all around are fantastic. Awesome work :D

This is wonderful....the light is fantastic.....and the reflections in the water are superb.....I personally don't think you need to get any closer.

HUMMMMM....have had a look at the picture by Thrumyeye, its a great shot, but personally I would have like to see all of the adult Grebe, cutting the bird in half has turned it more into a record shot rather than telling the whole story, you don,t know anything about the environment, or about the bird and rest of it's family. A personal thing, I guess.... not wanting to detract from what is a great picture.

The reflection of the bird is real, but I blurred the background (the water surface) slightly to enhance the effect.

They sem to be spending a lot of time diving. And suddenly they pop up to the surface, and you have to be very quick to capture them. Glad you like it :)
