Though yellow leg flashes aren't clear on this photo, they were there. The interesting thing is the deep ruby-red appearance of the pterastigma on the wingtips. I looked through all the other photos I've taken of common darters in the last couple of years, and not one is as bright as this. I think perhaps it's in part due to reflected light from the water surface.
