Gold Horns

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Silver or Gold prompt.

I had a few ideas for the prompt but wasn’t really happy with any of them. In the end I decided to go with the least obvious idea.

This is a summer plumage Horned Grebe on a pool near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada. I thought the birds ‘horn’ and some of the reflections surrounding it were golden. The reflections are a mix of sky, straw bales and a corral fence created by getting down as close to eye level with the bird as possible.

You will get some in winter when they’re a much drabber colour, mostly black and white. They breed mostly a western and central Canada. It’s quite a widespread species being found across a lot of Eurasia when it’s known as the Slavonian Grebe.
