Horned Grebe

grebe portrait

Friends, this is a friendly horned grebe on Phantom Lake, the afternoon light was just right for a closeup portrait.  Those yellow feathers on each side of her head are the “horns”.  I don’t always get this close but he didn’t mind my vehicle.  til Tomorrow MJ

  2. I do love grebes, so perky but you have to be quick to catch them, well done!

  3. Great capture! Great closeup

  4. Unusual eye colour.
