Pied-billed Grebe...

Another Florida and another Viera wetlands bird. This one is the Pied-billed Grebe and was one of my favorites from the trip. Often it was very windy making it difficult to shoot birds in still water. This day it was calm and I was provided good light and a great reflection. Note the feet visible under water. By the way a group of grebes is know as a "water dance" of grebes.

Excellent! You captured it all with this one Brad; sharp, good lighting, terrific reflection, and one great little subject!

Great photo. Awesome reflection. I've always wanted to see one of these. Their call is really neat.

This helped me identify my lil "under the water" baby! At first I thought it was a cormorant, didn't even know they existed. *novice bird photographer learning daily!

So thankful you were here! :0)
