Eye Level with a Horned Grebe

This is my day 15 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my eye level perspective photos.

This is a breeding plumage Horned Grebe on a pool near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada. The pool was a watering hole for cattle so I was lying in a mixture of mud and cattle poop to get down to eye level with the bird. The reflections on the water are from a stack of weathered straw bales behind the pool.

WWE #30: Golden Reflections

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #30 Photo Challenge.

These are two summer plumage Horned Grebe on a farm pool in Saskatchewan, Canada. The golden reflections on the water aren’t from a sunset, the photo was taken in the afternoon.

Behind the pool is a weathered wooden corral fence and a large stack of weathered straw bales. Because I was lying in the mud at the edge of the water getting down to eye level with the birds the fence and bales are being reflected in the water.

I should also explain that the Horned Grebe of North America is a subspecies of the bird known as the Slavonian Grebe in the U.K.
