I have not seen a Darter at our local pond since winter, so I was very happy to see one get a casual visitor pass there today. This one stuck around quite a while, had a swim and made a loud clacking noise at times. It also did its 'wings pegged out to dry' routine then posed for the camera in classic Darter style, if a little self conscious. I hope it will return for a repeat performance soon.
Yay the darter is still there!
