The "Grebe Whisperers". We spent years studying and photographing the Grebes on Lake Hodges, CA. Their uniquie matting behaviour called "rushing" is one of the most photographed animal behaviours and Lake Hodges in sunny California is home to over 400 Grebes. Rushing is when Grebes "walk on water" to find a mate, and it only lasts 5-7 seconds. Knowing what to listen for and what to look for before rushing happens is the key to that perfect shot!
