Travel Photo Contest – Ian Neilson

I was out for a stroll with my dogs at Loch Lomond Pond in McKenzie Towne Calgary this past May and spotted two chubby birds belly bumping like a couple of sumo wrestlers. Turned out it was two Horned Grebes doing the “Horned Grebe Penguin Dance” which is a part of their mating ritual. I always take my Canon 7D camera with my 300mm L series lens when I walk around that way, never know what you are going to see. I was approximately 25 feet away from them. (By the way, it is very rare to see Horned Grebes Mating…nothing on Google or Naturalists Mags)
