Moss Landing Harbor, California
This image of an Eared Grebe with sea lettuce was captured while sitting on a dock at Moss Landing Harbor, California. Boats in the harbor were casting beautiful colors in the water, so I watched and waited for the bird to surface in an area where a turquoise blue would make a beautiful backdrop, emphasizing the green sea lettuce in the bird's mouth, the droplets of splashed water and the bird's red eye.
