Wildlife Pictures

Expert wildlife photographers stake out their quarry like a hunter and wait, sometimes for days, for the perfect shot to appear. I am not one of them. But once in a while on a trout stream the wildlife photo opportunities come to me, and when I can I have my camera ready.

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.

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.

High upon a signpost rearing, down upon pedestrians jeering, 
Squawking rather nasty things not heard from any bird before;
Parking regulations broken, yet the bird paid not a token,
And the bird was so outspoken, taunting watchers at its fore,
Taunting that it need not pay the fee that we abhor.
This it laughed, and then it soared. From University of Alaska Fairbanks in Alaska.

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?
