Common Darter

By maroondah
Taken at the weekend during a visit to a local nature reserve. The pond is quite new and doesn't yet have everything you might expect but its getting there. I found an old stick, pushed it in the bank of the pond and waited. There were 3-4 males and one female darter but the female didn't stay still for a second. It took just on 2 hours for the male's to find the stick but it was (in my opinion) well worth the wait. Hope everyone is okay. A fellow epz member just let me know this is a broad bodied chaser so apologies for the misleading title.

Wow you have certainly blown me away with this one Gerry. I find it very hard to find the patience for wildlife photography. I guess I am not fast enough. This has excellent clarity and detail to it. Fantastic Gerry. However from you that is no surprise LOL.
