Rushing Grebes on Lake Hodges

SAN DIEGO COUNTY (Lake Hodges and other areas) & ORANGE COUNTY

One of the most diversified location for wildlife spotting, including hundereds of birds (resident or migratory), mammals, gorgeous landscape and of course plants. San Diego County is a nature photographer's perfect playground. During the year there are different areas to take photos from and different subjects, and we can help you achieve your goals especially if you are short on time. You can be a professional photographer or just someone who enjoys nature, you will depart with plenty photos from different areas of the County after our tour. 


The "Grebe Whisperers". Both Krisztina and David spent years studying and photographing the Grebes on Lake Hodges, CA. Their uniquie matting behaviour called "rushing" is one of the most photographed animal behaviours and Lake Hodges in sunny California is home to over 400 Grebes. Rushing is when Grebes "walk on water" to find a mate, and it only lasts 5-7 seconds. Knowing what to listen for and what to look for before rushing happens is the key to that perfect shot!

We will explore all the amazing landscapes and wildlife. Of course a few Castles and Distilleries will be included on our tours. Small groups, photography holidays, and custom tours.

''Last week, we took Krisztina's lake/boat tour with our Aunt. We highly recommend going on the boat tour with Krisztina! We saw an eagle first thing [well, KS sighted it, of course! Then she pointed out that a 2nd eagle had joined the 1st!]. The Grebes had a lot to say to each other and we saw their "walking on water" behavior a few times--so exciting to see! We saw several different species of birds and loved every minute of our tour. Treat yourself to a fun, educational unique tour--well worth the price!!! We give our tour a 5 out of 5 rating!! Awesome morning!! Thank you, KS, for an unforgettable experience!'

"I've been out doing nature photography with Krisztina at Lake Hodges on several occasions and find her great company and I'm also impressed with her keen eye for natural behavior. She has "wonder woman" like hearing and can detect when Grebes are going to rush from across the lake......this is true!"

- Roy Toft,


'If you like her photos, and want to learn how to take better wildlife photos, treat yourself to a trip with her locally. Scotland with KS Nature Photography was a once in a life time experience. Krisztina sees the best in landscapes, wildlife and people. As a result people fall in love with her, and shared with us opportunities and experiences that will never be forgotten!!'

- Cris Ballinger - Scotland Tour 2018 participant


"Krisztina was waiting for me on the morning of our tour of Lake Hodges. She has a keen eye and a patient heart. Intuitive to her clients. She knew a wealth of information about the Grebes at Lake Hodges. I don't know what more you could ask for."

- Catherine Kelley


"I had the most amazing morning with Krisztina at Lake Hodges. Her knowledge and expertise made it so I could see AND photograph the grebes doing their "rushing" (walking on water). She taught me about birding locations, bird behavior and how to use the long lens I brought. Her photography tips were worth millions. I saw 19 different kinds of birds in 3 hours at Lake Hodges. I highly recommend taking one of Krisztina's tours."

- Betty M Stevens


"I have been out with this photographer a few times in different locations. She really knows her stuff and is fun to be with. She is really helpful knowing where the good areas are. I always look forward to a scheduled time with her."

- Jennie McFarling


"I met her at the Bird festival in San Diego, she was leading an outing at the Lake Hodges. She is extremely professional, entertaining and nice. Since then I am following her on facebook, and i am amazed by the beauty of her pictures.

- Katia Bonaldi


"Krisztina is a brilliant photographer with a fantastic eye. She's traveled the world photographing scenery and wildlife with fantastic results. She has an amazing body of work, is diligent and has great attention to detail. Her most recent trip to Scotland produced some fantastic and haunting images from the Isle of Skye. I would highly recommend her as a wildlife photographer and guide. You not only will learn how to shoot wildlife, but hear fascinating tails along the way. Krisztina is personable, professional, and full of energy. Highly recommend spending the day with your camera and won't regret it."
