Little Pied-billed Grebe

These are sneaky little guys. Shy, and seem to take pleasure tormenting photographers. As soon as you lift the camera, gone. They dive fast and surprisingly long.

This is the winter time brown coloring, not that they get all that colorful ever. With the brown reflections in this swamp it was shooting ‘brown on brown’.

They are entertaining during breeding season. As far as I can tell the mating ritual is to run on the water, fast as they can, until they both run out of breath. Silly but fun to watch.
