You betcha' You betcha' We should all wish for this seasonal shot...but I am adrift down here S of the 49th...and wondering what will come...I feel something in the air..can you also feel it.I think it is a spiritual thing..perhaps beyond that which we can fully know...and after looking and responding to Wolfy's image..I think you folks up there have an idea...I am watching closely....and BTW kin I call ye' on land line since I have it free via MgickJack?
you don't know but this photo has captured my imagination and heart all at once as I really love seeing these birds and the best thing is you have a family of them.It is so cool that the young have those Zebra stripes as most Grebes do and this photo shows that detail very well.The colour is also spot on the money as I should know having many dozens of photos of them.I also like the green hue that the water has and overall it is a fine photo indeed.The only thing that could make it better is if the young were riding on the parents backs.Thanks for sharing these beautiful birds with us all.Have you had as of yet the good fortune to see a Clark's Grebe as for me it is the only one I have yet to photo.

Great family picture. I am impressed with beautifulness of the colours, superb DOF and ultimate sharpness and details of the scene. Lighting is amazing too. Perfect ork in every respect. Well done and kind regards.

OK that does it...I am keeping an eye out for a canoe.
I love this shot,the young ones have such interesting plumage.
The way they ride around on the parents back is awesome.
The colours and details are excellent.

A great family portrait of the Red-necked Grebe taken from a nice low POV with excellent sharpness and lighting. Can't be easy to take such a shot from a canoe, even if it is a good way of getting closer!
Thanks for taking this delight from your archives. Get well soon!

Awesome shot! What excellent transporters mother and father make!
I'd just love to see them myself Rick.
And I l;ove how the baby on the right is looking back at his brother...
Well seen and captured

bellissimo gruppo familiare di Svassi, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione armoniosa,
ottima definizione, magnifici i colori e l'acqua con le piccole ondulazioni.

This grebe family seems easy going and very happy! It must be an addition for you to heal! I just love the blue waves, the green in the water, the beautiful little ducks. This picture is filled with joy, Rick! Get well very very soon!
