Always appreciate your nice compliments, Richard!

I confirm that my back and neck did hurt! But I now have a cushy yoga mat for tomorrow.

Thank you very much, Mike! Apparently that is the standard way of mom grebe offloading the chicks to take a break. There were actually 3 babies on her back, although only 1 can be seen in this picture. Here are all three after the stand-and-shake action:

My take is that you liked my photo so much that you can't help making a second comment, thank you again! :lol::-P :p

That's it. You hit the nail on the head...plus the fact that I'm quite forgetful. :lol:

This shot is very nice Shalu. I like how the little buggers stole all the good light. and get all the attention of the viewers.:mrgreen:

Ah, live and learn! Thanks for the info. I was told it was an Egyptian Duck, but as they say, ignorance is bliss! :lol: Still a beautiful creature nontheless :-)

I sure didn't mean to act like a know it all, because the truth be known, I'm wrong so often. I know of the Egyptian goose which is native to Africa and introduced to the US. I'm not aware of any particular duck called an Egyptian duck, however. The Mandarin duck that you photographed in eclipse plumage, is in my opinion, the most beautifully colored duck in the world when in full breeding plumage. Check it out on the google link below.

Thank you very much Red Dexs. I appreciate your thoughtful comment. I posted the shot because I too like the crazy background. I didn't plan the shot that way, but I feel like I got lucky the way it turned out.

Interesting follow up thanks.
Guess I've done that with offspring myself. They can only crawl all over you for a limited time  :p
Actually the spotlight on the offspring puts it in the typical place. Poor mum is just present, the kids get all the accolades :rolleyes:
Lovely photo.

Great capture of a beautiful bird, yet to see one in the flesh so to speak.

Just to satisfy anyone who wonders about the wood nymph photo I just shared, the photo has been worked a little in LR. However the colors are there. Here is a JPG conversion of the raw photo with no adjustments except a slight crop. Just amazing, this is right out of the camera.
