The Amazing Dancing Grebes

By Lillian  
It took me 8 years to get my first grebe ritual images... and there they were again today

Started with four of us at the lakes... then it was just Mike and I.. and Oh Boy!!!
did we get the shots... they danced right in front of us so watch out for
Mike Young's photo... of the ritual as well
We are both as pleased as 'punch'

Thank you for your comments and awards on the last Grebe
always appreciated

Lillian

Ah, I never realised it was nesting material. Makes sense. Pigeons do the same but in a much muckier way. Smile
