Landscape & scenery photos from the Namekagon River
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.
When the lead 9" brown grabbed one of my three wet flies and started zooming around his buddy couldn't resist grabbing one of the others. This is an underwater picture of the two of them together on the line.
A large spring's short outlet enters the river here and keeps it open during even the deepest cold spells.
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.
This poster shows a mink, but when I made up the poster I thought it was an otter. Now you know why I'm not a trapper. It was a pretty big mink.
A black bear cub stares down at me from a large pine near one of my favorite trout streams.
