Thought I would drop a couple of pictures of darter couples from the darterfest...

 

Vermillions

and Blackbandeds (I never realized how different the males and females looked)

Those Vermillions are pretty fish. As for the Blackbandeds' dimorphism, I was in the same camp Michael...

Great photos Michael. Looks like you guys were there at the right time to catch the vermillions in good color. Is the female blackbanded the lower fish?

Thx. Yes, the females remain mottled all over, and the males get clear to smoky solid colored fins and almost a blue green haze over their bodies.

Looks like the 2017 Darter Festival snuck up on us this year...

April 9.

 

It will not be aligned with the BioBlitz at Turkey Creek nor will the actual festival be held at the Good People's Brew House.

 

Anyway with all i have going on i will not be attending.

However i will be interested in a NANFA group camping event for the BioBlitz come this fall.
