Famed for their elaborate courtship "dance", great crested grebes are one of the most striking and recognisable waterbirds in the UK. From their piercing eyes to their elaborate head plumage, enhanced during courtship, you can't fail to be impressed by these birds.
While this pair, snapped by Nature's Home reader, Mark Sweeney, at RSPB Loch Leven, are not fully immersed in their courtship ritual just yet, they certainly seem to be giving each other the eye and it's surely just a matter of time before the "dancing" begins!
Can I interest you in a dance? (photo courtesy of Nature's Home reader, Mark Sweeney)
