I saw this chap waiting patiently on the bank of a little creek...the sun was shinning after a heavy down pour so it was probably drying off

I agree with Shandoor - it looks like a Darter to me too - either way, it's a lovely shot and you have taken advantage of the position of the sun well.....Louisa

Fine shot Gerry - this is a female Darter I'd say - the juvenile is also very similar to this - Cormorants have a hook at the end of the beak, and their wings are a lot darker...Bill
