Lovely shot :)
They do that to reduce the heat by pointing their tail at the sun so you could probably rig up a clock using one :)

I've seen that too with a ruddy darter last year, but it was the opposite way round, presumably because it was too cold. I wondered at the time if it was adopting an aggressive stance because I was too close with the camera.

Brian - interesting information, but where did you get that information from? I ask because I have found nothing in any of my reference books that states that, in fact they need the heat to generate the wing muscles. Could you point me in the direction of the info please? Thanks.
