CommentA pair of Great Crested Grebes exchanging gifts (detritus from the bottom of the lake!) during their courtship dance. Both birds dive to the bottom of the lake and surface with rotting vegetation, which they then exchange with one another. They also seem to use the same material for building their nests.
