It is mating time, so the play is serious. Excellent action shot.

the window of opportunity is a fast one in this image, like the male that is all puffed up, perfect.

Nice mating behavior shot. I once filmed the whole sequence-the female went entirely under water , they twirled around, and then she popped up. I wonder if that has just happened-she looks so wet.
