The other day we finally had some nice warm weather, so I payed a visit to the local creek. Though no herps were found, I found something just as good-my lifer Rainbow Darter.

Beautiful fish, Zach! :thumb: A buddy and I found our first rainbows when we got his car stuck in the middle of a stream we were trying to drive across - on a trip we made specifically to find that and other darter species. I waded out to push and quickly found them hopping around the loose rocks the car wheel was slipping on. :lol:

They're fairly easy to acclimate to aquarium life if you ever want to give that a try.
