I have heard of these birds before, but must admit I have never seen one in the wild. I believe they have a type of this kind of bird in Florida.
You have done a great job of capturing it's image for all to enjoy viewing. Looks like this particular fellow is drying out his wings before taking another plunge into the water.

Very exciting capture, he is very agile. I like the reflection off the wings it helps to show off his plumage. Looking at this photo very thing looks great. The composition, POV, DOV and sharpness. Super job
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful shot of the darter with it wing wide spread showing nice detail of the plumage. Though looking from behind, but with its head turned to preen it feather, the face is clearly visible. Very good shot. Thanks.
