The other day I posted the grebe underwater, and since his head was submerged you could not see his cute face. so below is a grebe shot. Note the red eyes. Not a side shot so you can see one eye like a ruby; for some reason they did not come out well. But I like this one. How often am I going to take a shot of a wary waterbird and be close enough to see both sides of his head decently?

Others are harbor this morning. A plus to Daylight Savings Time this early is I can get up early enought to catch a sunrise without it being too early on the clock. Beyond those trees at the back of the picture is a park road, beyond that is Lake Michigan, so a nice place for sunrises. I kind of like it over the harbor though.

Click on them to see large. The sunrises especially look fine that way. A pity they last about 15 minutes tops and then gone.

Both the sunrise shots are gorgeous....i think shot #3 is my favourite by a small margin. I`ve never been able to get close enough to our Grebes to get a shot like #1, so well done on that one.....lovely sharp pic.

Not the same as Picture Of The Day, but my wife is always bugging me to send pictures to the local NBC weather guy so I sent him the middle one of this set. Just got an email from him he will send it to his substitute tonight, and it will also appear in one of the Sunday papers.

Too bad they don't have camera info to go with the picture or I could maybe make a few more Panasonic converts.
