on my last outing, all I seemed to see was darters. Here are another two. The one with the black head and neck is male. It was shot from a long distance and like many photos I take in this specific location, the focus is a bit soft. The one with the light head and neck is female

Like that caption. You caught great poses for both, drying in the the sunshine, and a nice reflection in the first. Long distance shots are difficult, but you did well. Good shooting.

Very nice captures. The North American/Central American variety is almost identical. I watched them walking underwater in the Everglades spearing fish and then popping their heads back out. They are very interesting birds.
