The term for this side by side dance is called "Rushing"
This was taken a few years ago at a local lake.
I hope you like it.

Classic grebe rushing behaviour, captured beautifully, David! I love the symmetry in their action, the superb detail and the flying water wake behind them. Wonderful image!

Exceptional image of the "Rushing" behavior, David. One of the best I've seen!

Always amazed when I see video of this display. You caught the action perfectly. Great job. It goes without saying that besides the behavioral action the eyes are the star of the show for me.

A scene I have never had the pleasure of seeing live. Well captured!

Really a beautiful image,
I love the symmetry of the subjects and the splashes of water help to accentuate the movement.

Think that I'll save time and point out what's wrong with this photo...I figured that would be faster. It's flawless.
