I went to visit my son and his girlfriend this weekend... taking the time for a picnic at a local cemetery that features a small pond as well what is best described as a nature trail we witnessed this...





















my son managed a video using his cell phone while I forgot (despite standing right there watching him make the video) that one of the reasons I bought my new camera was for it's ability to take HD videos... what a complete idiot

We were there for over an hour and a half... saw the event from the start but the snappers were still at the mating ritual when we left... I guess everything is slow with them... very cool event to witness.
