On our last trip to Port Orchard I saw more Horned Grebes than I’ve seen in weeks, and most of them were finally in full, or near full, breeding plumage.
More importantly, all seemed eager to pose,
and as long as they were willing to pose
I was willing to shoot away.
Ultimately that meant having to spend longer than I wanted to sorting through and refining the shots. I was more than willing to do that because I’m pretty sure they’ll be gone before I get back again — if they’re not already off to their breeding grounds.
