Here's a close up of a little grebe I took this summer.

That's much more like it... Nice picture of this small and agile grebe Alan!

Yours is also in summer outfit while when I saw them they were mostly in winter plumage (one still had a bit of reddish-brown on its cheeks - or maybe he was just blushing ;))

Its been a while since I captured a worthy shot for posting here.  I had a quick trip to Joshua Tree National Park and chased the Jays around...here is a Scrub Jay perched on the top of a Joshua Tree flower stem.

Such a beautiful morning that I just had to go out with the 800mm DO/5DIV. As usual by chance, I strolled past this handsome kestrel with the light behind me (not by chance). He took off, and I could not believe to see he had been ringed.

About an hour from where I live, the Salmon have followed the river up to spawn. Here is one of the largest of gatherings of Eagles which feast on the Salmon. Lighting was very poor and I was not able to get an image worth showing. Instead, here is an image of a Seagull which would dip under the water and steal the nested eggs of the Salmon one by one.

Very nice light on the kestrel.

The very low angle of the sun today gave some interesting reflections from eyes from ripples in the lake (5DIV-400mm DO @ 560mm).
