    Nice, solid image Dan. I like the outstretched neck and excellent IQ. Nice low POV.
    Would not mind a sliver more behind the grebe,

    Really strong frame, Dan. The exposure and detail across the whole bird is perfect. Eye contact is money, and the water drops are a nice bonus. I'd loosen the crop to get the full reflection.

    Nice one Dan! Beautiful and colorfull water taken from a good low shooting angle. The bird itself has excellent details, great eye contact and nice exposure. I do agree that the image is a bit tight. I would love to see the reflection of the bird end in green. I also think the light is a bit on the harsh side.

    Looks good all around. Nice pose and framing. The color of the water is nice.
