Does anyone have any photos of sunfish nesting:

This is for the slideshow I'm working on for the Bucks County Aquarium Society.

Specifically, I'm looking for:

A photo of a sunfish nesting colony

Sunfish spawning

A male sunfish hollowing out a nest with its tail

A male sunfish flare it's gills to chase away intruders

A realize that these photos might be hard to come by. Whatever you've got will help. After I deliver the presentation, I'm donating it to the NANFA speaker's bureau

As always, I'm more than happy to credit the slide to you and mention your Web site. I won't make any money off the presentation or resell it.
