Ring Around the Grebe

Horned Grebe
He's cuter from a little distance away. Large here.

I'm assuming this is the same guy as in the earlier picture...?

Good capture, either way.

Yes, same bird, same day. He dove and hunted several times as I watched him, coming up further and further away. Then he took a short nap. Hilarious. He uses himself as a down pillow. It has been an off year, waterfowl-wise, because of the strangely mild weather.

I photographed a pileated woodpecker out back in the woods yesterday, though, and I got documentary but not postable shots of my first-ever yellow-bellied sapsucker. Yes, that's a real bird.
