I followed this little female around for 1/2 an hour trying to get a shot of her because it's so rare to see one. Every time I got close to her, it'd fly to the tree at the opposite end of the swamp and off I'd go again...rinse, repeat! This was as good as it got. I did see her dive in the pond after a fish...Wow!

You did well, as soon as I get close to one of these it flies away. One day I swear I'll get one :)

Nice shot casil. Ya, they're extremely skittish! They really know how to lead you on.

Michaelaw, have you tried the Jericho and Ambleside ponds? I've had luck at both of them this year.
