Horned Grebe, Icelandic

This was taken in the rain and a lot of wind on and off. In addition, it was exceedingly buggy. These birds have magnificent color.

Beautiful colors. You handled the weather conditions well-I’d have thought it was a sunny day.

Beautiful bird and you did a good job defeating the conditions.

Excellent photo. Beautiful bird.

David, one of your very best, imo. An amazing bird caught beautifully, especially in those conditions.

Very nice David. Fine detail and love the color rendition. Well done.

Wow! He stands out so well against that silvery water! Wonderful detail and color on a spectacular subject!

What a beautiful bird, David. I’ve never seen one of these. Well done.

Hi David
To get all that color and detail on a cloudy day is amazing. Very nice work.

I was wondering why the grebe is centered in the frame–then I saw the bubble. I love the colors as they are nice and vibrant. The pano comp works for this grebe too. Awesome…Jim

Isn’t he a gaudy little dude! Very well done.
