The other day when I photographed the Black-crowned Night Heron at Bear River National Wildlife Refuge I also photographed some Clark’s and Western Grebes, I found these two images of this Western Grebe interesting and wanted to post them.
This is a classical pose for a Western Grebe photograph, it shows the long elegant neck, the sharp bill and those maraschino cherry red eyes. I wish the light had been a touch better but there were some clouds overhead that prevented the best light from occurring.
Now this pose with a head on look… well I find it humorous! It isn’t often that I get to take Western Grebe images with the face head on. I just had to share.
