I delayed in going after this bird. During the summer in Illinois these birds are on every telephone wire and fence line along open fields. But i finally succumbed to the twitch and headed to the Sandy River Delta where the bird had been reliably seen for a couple of weeks. Hard little bugger to get a good photograph during the mid-day trip i had available.
The Darners escaped my camera – again – but i got a few good shots of the Skimmer.
