  3. Thanks Natalie, Chris and Pam.

    Chris, they are not common here, appear only during their spring and fall migration on small ponds and lakes.

  4. Great capture! Was this Grebe migrating to the Atlantic coast when you spotted it? No need for the red eye removal tool here!
    I see in your profile that you have a FZ28. These Panasonic bridge cameras are excellent. I have my old FZ20 fitted with a very inexpensive clip on Raynox M-150 microscopic lens that takes world class macros!
    You, my dear, are a National Treasure!

  5. Thanks Dawn!

    Springman, thanks :-)!! I have been thinking about getting a macro lens but didn't want to spend the money. I went on Amazon to check out the Raynox M 150 and was suprised. So I ordered it as an early Christmas present. Thanks for the recommendation.

  10. Excellent, the red eye really sets them off.

    We only see them in migration, I expect it is the same with you.
