Hope They Have All The Permits

Red-Necked Grebes

F/5.6, 1/320, ISO 100.

Red-Necked Grebe

The homeowner was delighted with the way the painter had done all the work on his house.

“You did a great job.” he said and handed the man a check.

“Also, in order to thank-you, here’s an extra $80 to take the missus out to dinner and a movie.”

Later that night, the doorbell rang and it was the painter.

Thinking the painter had forgotten something the man asked, “What’s the matter, did you forget something?”

“Nope.” replied the painter. “I’m just here to take your missus out to dinner and a movie like you asked.”

Interesting Fact: Like other grebes, the Red-necked Grebe ingests large quantities of its own feathers. Feathers remain in the bird’s stomach. The function of feathers in the stomach is unknown. One hypothesis suggests that the feathers help protect the lower digestive tract from bones and other hard, indigestible material.
