Nesting grebe

Continuing the story of the bewildering Flickr Explore selection discussed in the previous two posts. This shot of a nesting grebe unexpectedly became my 17th selection in Explore. I shot it a few minutes walking away from our home, in the park where I always walk the dog. I check twice a day now, trying to catch the moment when the grebettes come out.
