After shooting some herons and ducks in the park I returned to the small towns harbor
and had another look at the Grebe. The light was not perfect but much better than three hours before.
So I was laying on the pier and took some shots and by the time I was thinking about going home things got interesting .....
Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

Great action shots. Lots of territorial fights going on now that it is nesting season.

I guess I should lay on the pier, instead of sitting on the dock of the bay.

You did great Chris and were able to get some great action shots
I like the menacing look in #2 but to me even when they get upset they still hold their beauty and sweet look

This time of year provides such great opportunities if we'll just wait a bit like you did Chris.
Terrific action of course, and very well captured... 2, 7, 8, and 9 are the standouts for me.
Nice work Chris.

My oh my, Chris, what a thrill it must have been to watch all this action.
I'm amazed that you had the presence of mind to photograph it.
And THEN to get so many thrilling and excellent images of it.
Well, kudos and more.

I have seen a few of these Chris and thankfully it has been mostly posturing and intimidation and a lot of action too without too much actual contact.
Can only imagine the damage these guys could do to each other with those beaks.
Great action set and good that you waited to catch them.
