Ruddy Darters Mating
I have not knowingly seen Darters mating before. These were on my third visit to the Decoy Heath reserve, in the afternoon, after a dragon-free morning.
The bluish background is reflection off the water. The blurred verticals are reed stems. The pair settles on a plant on the far side of the rushes and I has to shoot through gaps. The blurred verticals are OOF rush leaves.
The stereos are crosseye.
