Nice, I would like to see this someday.

Thank you, Rob! Hope you fulfill your wish one day, it is spectacular to witness.

Priceless. Beautifully captured.
Birds sure have unique antics.

Thank you very much, Richard.

Amazing capture.

Thank you, Archi!

That's spectacular Shalu. I've only witnessed it a time or two in my life. Beautifully done.

Thank you, Mike! I was informed by my photographer friends recently that there are breeding western and clark's grebes in a local reservoir, so I have been going there a few times. This is the first time for me to see the rushing behavior in person.

Since you like the picture, you might like my animated gif (external link) even more (created from a burst by Google Photos automatically).

:) Thanks. I could not move for excitement when I saw it perched in that branch.

I found the animated gif of complete sequence (external link) totaling 20 frames I manually created in Google Photos, it shows the grebes falling down to water in the end, even funnier, haha.
