Grebe fish

First of all, I must say that I LOVE grebes. I can watch them for hours: diving, playing, and showing territorial displays. This was a great series of shots taken by my buddy Bill Kominsky. I love how the little fisher doesn't give up even when the catch is obviously too big to swallow. Unfortunately, he had to leave his fish on the bank for someone else to eat.
If you come visit Green Cay right now we have dozens of Pied-billed Grebes for your enjoyment.
