Hi Everton,

That sounds like fun - swimming with the Grebes. He is a pretty one with that stunning red eye. Lovely colors and details. The water looks wonderful and smooth with nice ripples and the reflection.


Hello Everton,

Very nice shot of this lovely Eared Grebe.
Great clarity, sharpness and exposure due to wich the feather details are most wonderful.
Love the very beautiful contrast between the bright red eye and the duller colors i the feathers and surrounding water.
Very well done. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

Hi Everton.
Superb picture of the beautiful bird. It is reflected perfectly. Amazing feather and eyes reproduction, 3D-efect and transparency of the image are perfect. Bravo.

Nice catch.Beautiful colors.Eye color matches well with the yellow stripes.
Interestingly part of Grebe is very clear and the other is not so clear.

Wonderful shot Everton. It's in perfect focus and framed very well. The lighting is perfect and brings out the colour of the eye. I love the colour of it's eye lashes. They stand out in the sun. Just a great shot Everton. TFS Trevor
