Lying on a small pier I managed to take this photo. Shooting from a low-position, being at the same height as this Black-necked Grebe (Podiceps nigricollis/Geoorde Fuut), creates much more intimacy. The bird scrutinizes the water surface for aquatic life as prey. With their black head, red eye and yellow ear plumes, they look like little devils.
