Thank you so much Robert. I didn't plan for that, and I really didn't pay much attention to the background until I saw it in lightroom , and thought, "this is kinda cool." So I played with the presets a little until it seemed to look okay.

I saw something really odd. This time, the baby grebe REFUSED to eat the fish offered by its parent. The parent tried many times, the baby just would not eat it! I have never seen this before.

Thanks Richard. They were picking up the lily pads and folding them over and then feeding on something that was attached to the underside of the pads.
