This beautiful pair of horned grebes nested successfully on our pond last summer, raising three young, and have returned to nest again. The great part of having them back again is that they are now comfortable with my presence and remain within 15 to 20 feet from me as I click away..

    I like that when these creatures gain our trust....That is wonderful and they seem to know instinctively who they can trust. Great capture..
