I'm breaking my rule about naming locations for this picture, since the context adds much to its meaning.  This great blue heron is standing on a slab of river-worn concrete silhouetted against the NY Quickway bridge over the Beaverkill River at Cairn's Pool.  Several human fishermen pursue trout from one shore while an avian fisherman pursues them from the other. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

My dad held the canoe in place while I snapped a picture of this immature bald eagle perched in a pine over the river on an August evening.  It probably caught more fish than we did. From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

Two dear make tracks across a frozen trout stream in the deep snows of early February not far from Lake Superior.  I had hoped to sample nymphs in the stream (which later turned out to be quite fertile) but it wasn't open. From the East Fork of the Iron River in Wisconsin.
