African Darter drying Wings

Darters, like cormorants, need to dry their plumage after having stayed longer in water for hunting. Therefore the select sunny places to get dried. They also need to take care intensively of their feathers. That is why they spent long time cleaning as well. That is usually a good occasion for photographers to take nice pictures.
