Just now getting around to processing, imaged in Yellowstone NP
last fall.
Not a great shot but hopefully enough to identify

I've noticed they love the reeds and the cattails.

No, they aren't. The ones near me don't let me get very close. Or they are in the middle of swamp so I make no attempt to get closer.

Same here, always on cattails and in a bogwallow where even rubber boots wouldn't help.

Pure artwork here.

Edited to Add: after seeing this on my Retina MacBook Pro, I'd like to emphasize just how amazing this photo is. Definitely in my 'Top 5 Best Ever' category.
