    These guys are so fun to watch in courtship. I have courting Clark’s I should post. Good one Mia.

      Thank you Hans! They rushed right after this display.

  • Hans Spiecker

    Of course the rushing is the classic display photo but I have loved to watch what I call “water snapping” which they often seem to do shortly before rushing.

      Me too, I love all of their behaviors.
