  1. "Grebe on a Mission"

    Shot this morning at Brazos Bend State Park at 39 degrees!!! (PLEEEEZZZZEEE! It's the middle of April for goodness sakes! In Houston! Texas Gulf Coast! Global warming - pshaaaaaa!)

  2. I would guess that mission involves fish in one way or another :wink:

  4. Actually this one is the second of a pair I photographed in succession. The first paddled off across the water, then dove when it noticed an 8 foot gator near by. The gator was not interested, fortunately. Then this one noted its "partner" had disappeared and steamed across the lake, bow wave and wake as shown, making soft plaintive little yelps (as if to say: "Where'd you go, dear?, Dear?? where are you, dear heart???") rather than the more common "finger-nails on a blackboard" sound the are known for. They joined up a after another minute or so , so all was well at that end of the swamp.
  5. Very nice capture Nick. I really like the colors and the pose.
