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.
Charlie


Thank you Charlie.
I had some luck in the last two images that the grebe were in the same focal plane.
Also I like to shoot in manual and set it for IF shots. That helped to freeze the action.

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.
Martin


Thank you Martin. They came also unharmed out of the fight.
The final fight was over in a few seconds and the two couples departed in different directions
and returned to keep on building at their nest.

Great capture of the action Chris. It looks like the light was harsh and you handled it quite well.


Thank you Herb. Yes, the light was on the harsh side.
I appreciate you having a look.
