CommentI like the way these birds rest their head on their neck region, This female Darter is one of a
pair which inhabits a local lake. Its always a highlight to visit them on a regular basis.
When photographing them this particular morning I was fortunate to get close enough
to get a good head shot. Also the morning light was hinting the bird to one side with some
nice back ground mist off the lake. It looked as if she just had a feed so was happy to stay still for awhile to dry off as they do.
