Lakescape - 488 ...

These little beauties
are the little
decorations around
wetlands ...

... dwelling and
nesting
in the reedbeds
around stray
waterbodies in open
countryside

This image was captured
in evening twilight
... sun having already
gone below the
distant horizon ...

Though, sighted often ...
they do not pose well
frequently ...

Watch the activity of this
lovely male in one
and the pair in another
video-clip ...
