Male Eared Grebe (Podiceps nigricollis) Swimming on Small Lake, Colorado

It's been a while - sorry about that! Since getting home I've had a strong urge to relax a wee bit, and the idea of editing and processing my Colorado trip photos is a daunting one. No worries - I'm excited to do it and hope to get a good chunk done today. For now, this is one of my first newly processed images. This beautiful male Eared Grebe was found on a small prairie lake in northern Colorado. It is easily my favorite grebe I've had the chance to see so far.
