I have spent some time this spring photographing Great Crested Grebes. The shot that every bird photographer hopes to get of these showy birds is of the weed dance, which they perform during courtship. They pick up weed in their beaks and face each other in the water, they then turn their heads from side to side and usually finish off by lifting right up out of the water. It can be over in seconds and performed anywhere on the water, so getting photographs is tricky. I did manage some courtship shots this year but none of the weed dance. Here are some of the results up to now.
