    Wow that is the least grebe I have ever seen without seeing the null grebe!

    I have been frustrated by grebes a number of times… Oh…Click. Damn! Bird Butt Again!!

    Great shot.

    I have never seen the least grebe, but I have seen the little grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis) this year in the city of Hamburg when I was going for a walk after lunch.

    Eric, the time to give up is when you spend more time deleting photos than taking them. I’ve had experience waiting for people like that…
