A very nice action image of the grebe shaking off with ruffled feathers and and water droplets in midair. The water is beautiful, and your exposure is right on the mark.

There really is something about the eyes in grebes. Ruffled feathers, water droplets and incredible water topped off with that colorful eye. Well done.
