p.1 #1 · Grebe vs Gunnel (8)


Some Horned Grebes from last month. The one's feeding are feasting on Gunnels, an eel like fish that inhabits the Puget Sound. During one of these sequences the grebe had the whole gunnel in its throat but the gunnel managed to wriggle out again, that happened numerous times!!

These were taken from floating docks, not a kayak

Fabulous series Tim. I thought gunnels were on boats so I had a vision of what I was going to see before I saw this great deep throat sequence. Must be fun timing the up and down motion of the docks...do you use the vertical stabilizer?

Got any shots of the Gunnel on its own

Terrific images Tim, you timing and concentration to get these moments is impressive. Low level, nice kind light, great BG setup and some very cool action, Yup I am enjoying these my friend

The light in #4 is incredible and the look on #5 is delicious! We all know that a 'head on shot' ain't gonna work unless you 'dot the eyes' and you got them both dead ringer, what a great shot

Lovely, wonderful, entertaining.............it's all gooooood here!

Great stuff Tim. I love the fishy action, but the last 3 are my picks, and 6 has an evil look... ~ Ron

Awesome action set, Tim. I love them all and #4 is off the hook with the dark background.

Tim - super set. #4 is my favorite, but I also like the intense eyes for #6, #7 and #8.

Top shelf work in this set, Tim! Cool action in the first shots with the first two captures clearly showing the struggle between the Grebe and the Gunnel.
All the images are clean and detailed and the bgs are very complimentary as well.

Simply gorgeous Tim. Love the Little Grebe in breeding plumage, esp #5 & #6.

I'm really interested in #4 - despite being taken at the same settings as the others the BG is black, was this done in PP ?
