I think the Black Necked Grebe is officially my favourite water bird.. Just looking at this bird is like sex for the eyes 😆 They usually measure between 28 and 34 centimetres in length and weighs around 265 to 450 grams. This species breeds in vegetated areas of freshwater lakes in certain parts of England 🏴. In the summer these birds have an amazing plumage as you can see in the first 2 pictures, going into winter plumage they lose their impressive colours and go to a charcoal grey with a white under parts as you can see in the last 2 pictures (Juvenile).

Because the white patterns of the feathers really got my attention, I zoomed in closer and went for an almost black and white shot to really show the Anhinga’s wing design.
Vanghat is situated in a range of hills that are a transition zone between the plains to the south and the mountains to the northeast. At this melting pot you might get to spot species like Brown Dipper, Wallcreeper, and several species of Forktail (the Spotted and Little Forktail being the most common), Plumbeous and White-capped Water Redstarts, and several wagtail species.

Some of the magnificent elephants we were busy watching over today..... Leading the way is Norkinye, a formidable female from Eseseri's family who continues to show signs of becoming a good matriarch one day. You will notice once again that the matriarch, Eseseri, is in the back with her calf waiting dutifully for the herd to proceed ahead of her. The rangers were monitoring more than one herd today and when this family we are so familiar with decided to walk by, almost in greeting, it was profoundly special. A scene such as this illustrates perfectly that elephants are at their most beautiful, majestic and breathtaking when in the wild. It is spectacular experiences such as this which are the driving force behind our constant dedication to securing a future for this species in the Mara ecosystem. @life_in_the_masai_mara#elephants#love#worthmorealive#elephantaware#wildlifephotography#environmentalwarriors#natgeowild#kenya#conservation
