Twilight Romance

By phil_j  
Another from earlier in the year.
A pair of Great Crested Grebes in their courtship dance. the photo was taken as the sun was setting and I quite like the late evening colour that the photo took on.
Thanks for looking, as always comments are welcome and appreciated.

Lovely capture - I like the way the partial silhouette leaves just the grey and orange colours in the plumage which exactly match the colours in the water - would like to have seen it with a bit less border though, as pic would have been bigger.

A beautiful shot, they are wonderful birds. I agree with Sue about the border (you could have ticked the EPZ black background for the border), also did you do a crop on this one - are their heads in the reflection. I would have like to have seen the mirror image too. (I'm just greedy!!). A brilliant shot nonetheless!.

Thanks for the tip regarding the black border KarenFB, I must admit I wasn't aware you could do that!!.

Sorry to say that I missed their reflectedheads in the original shot, I was just so pleased and happy to see them start their courting routine that I didn't have the time to focus an trying to capture the full reflection.

Beautiful silhouettes against the evening sunlight. Really nice soft colour and ripple on the water.
