Not a duck- grebe

Friends, this small bird is not a duck, but a  pied-billed grebe. I love this image not for the bird, but the lovely patterns on the water.  Reflections of a partly cloudy sky or partly sunny, how do they differentiate between partly cloudy and partly sunny, guess it depends on whether the weather person is a pessimist or optimist 🙂 I myself prefer partly sunny , til Tomorrow MJ
