I am finishing up an article for the Darter put out by the Missouri Aquarium Society.  I hope to find good photos that can support written description of adults as a function of sex.  Would anyone be willing to allow inclusion of such images in the article from their gallery?

Yes, I assume the last is female?  My preference is to use last two images.  How do I credit you?

I assume it's a female as well, but I'm no expert!  Just put something like "photo by Ben Cantrell".

Everything I see says female.  Color of spots, creme color on vertical fins, and opercular tab in agreement.

And female has little if any iridescence on dorsal fin.
