A Little Grebe ( Tachybaptus ruficollis) on pond to which I have access too, quite close to my home. Much smaller than his cousin the Great Crested variety.

Good morning! The first time I saw one (just a couple years back) I was fascinated watching them, they were soooo cute and interesting to watch. It became a guessing game as to whether I could guess where they were going to surface. Tricky lil dudes, they change directions quickly under water. Beautiful image you capture there, bud.

Hi Kirk- Thank you for your comments, I agree they are skittish at best and its a hope and pray scenario to get a shot :)
Nice shot! I haven't seen them here.
Thank you Jeff- do they have them anywhere in the USA ?? Just curious

There are seven variants in N. America. I've probably seen them, but not close enough to identify.
