We saw a fair number of these Grebes, but they were quite skittish, and difficult to shoot.  We spotted a pair in a little creek area next to the wildlife loop road, in some decent light, but they quickly disappeared.  We waited around for a while, and they resurfaced in a somewhat shaded area, but the water caught the light and reflection from the nearby vegetation, which adds to this image.
