Weekly Photo Challenge:Down

Friends, thinking about both applications for the word, down.  Down as immature feathers poking from the backside on this Pied-billed Grebe or down as the direction out of my car window.I guess both definitions apply in this image.  This is a fall image as the lily pads are in a state of decay and the fall colors are reflected in the water behind this tiny bird.  They dive for their food and hence are almost always wet.  til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Excellent interpretation. I also like the painterly appearance.

  2. This is beautiful! The water is unreal… A truly lovely photograph and perfect for the theme!

  3. love your take on ‘down’ … i thought of downy feathers too so thrilled to see them here, thanks MJ 🙂 encouragement from christine http://wp.me/p296YA-2D

  4. I was wondering if anyone was going to take this angle. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pics of anything downy, nor is there anything downy around where I live. Good job.
