I was headed back to the car and this female flew from the brush and landed directly in front of me. I took a few head-on shots and slowly moved around to get a lateral view.

This species was seen at most locations we visited but in much smaller numbers than I'm used to and it never appeared to be the predominant species. That being said, most habitats we spent any amount of time at were lotic.

Looked like it had been there a while by the condition...but still persisted. It took some effort to extract it from the plant without destroying it.

I was unable to get a full lateral shot without looking like I was trying to take close-ups of little kids playing in the river...so I let it slide even though it irritates the hell out of me.
