A great blue heron does a flyover on a flock of young common mergansers.  I wonder how many hundreds of young trout go into the creation of a great blue heron and fifteen mergansers... hmm, where's Dick Cheney when you need him?

A whitetail fawn struggles through strong current to return to its mother.  It lost its footing a couple times, and I thought for a moment it was going to wash down to me. From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

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.

This is a common sight on the large Catskill rivers in early May, a mother goose guarding her nest.  They like to nest on midstream islands where anglers are prone to walk from one fishing spot to another, and they do not back down.  This one was hissing at me and I didn't want to get any closer. From the West Branch of the Delaware River in New York.
