Last year i made an urgent requst for campfire by the water pics. You all came through for me and i have nice escapes when at work.

Now I will be more challenging in my request. I like pics of animals swimming. I do not have many. Only loons, ducks, beaver and a black bear. Would love to see a moose swimming across a lake but have never been that lucky.

These are my serenity now pics for work. Instead of strangling a co-worker i sit back, count to 100 and look at a few pics of places i would rather be. Keeps me out of prison.

Hope these help. The turtle isn't swimming, but it was huge,so I added it anyway.

Dbor,
Here is a picture of a female moose and her two calves swimming across Mesaba Lake last July.

There are no animals in this photo but a few seconds before my son took it there were about 10 Merganser chicks. While getting ready to take the photo he must have spooked them. All he got was their bubble trails as they went to hide with their mother. Very calming.

Here's some odd ones. Never seen a squirrel swimming until a year or so ago.
