Beautiful image Bill - lovely detail and expression captured here! #773226

I agree with Cindy. Lovely shot. Nice definition and sharpness.
My shots of the Comorant and Snow Goose would have been clearer if I rememberd to change my converter settings to telephoto.
Those "little" things that make or break the image! #4998797

Congratulations on your WONDERFUL capture, Bill! Great lighting, detail, and colors! (I rarely ever see any grebes over at BelMar. Was this shot over by the lagoon?) CONGRATS, again! #5129799

Thank you for the kind words Cindy, Marvil, Kay, and Cary.

This was taken on the north side of the island that is across from the covered viewing platform. #5129886
