Duck butts! They taunt you to come nearer,daring you to take their picture. Your camera raises, and so does their tail.
You've been mooned!

Good timing with the last shot.

But I guess it wasn't all that easy to get perfectly aligned "duck tails" like that either! Nice one!

I missed the opportunity to do a 'guess the bum' competition! I suspect the birds were having a laugh. I'm sure the grebes always are!

Gallicissa, I will have to wait until I'm off dial up to check out the vid. :(
