This guy had the right idea on Gibson Lake...We also got several shots of 3 different wolves on this trip but were too far away to be used for contest.

Here is a mother loon and her chick taken on lake four last summer. It's kinda blurry since it was raining. Also since I took it point and shoot it's very small. :(

I am pretty sure LTs photo is that of the "Lac" Ness monster. Many a visitor has returned from the Lac La Croix with stories of a sighting a large humped beast. Old Nessycroix, as the Native Americans have called it, only emerges for seconds at a time, and this is indeed a rare photo of said prehistoric beast.

This pic was taken in May on a stream flowing near Brent Lake in the Q by my wife.

I believe it might be a Boreal Chorus Frog, but hard to tell from limited amount showing in the pic. Any other guesses?

Crooked Lake Swimming Bear


Saw this guy on crooked lake -- the photo's zoomed in quite a bit.. I was torn between keeping my distance and paddling closer for a better shot! What's more, the bear was swimming from an island where we'd camped the previous year...

LT went to the Bannock School of Photography. I used to be a door-to-door camera salesman selling cameras in small Iowa communities so their schools could start photography clubs. :-)

Oh you got trouble my friends
Right here in River City
and that starts with "T"
and rhymes with "C"
which stands for camera!

Twenty minutes after putting in at Moose River #16 we coasted by this whitetail. It was obviously terrified that we were so close--it almost stopped chewing its breakfast as we went by.

LIS North, last week. After this photo the moose continued to wade out into the river. When he got about 20 feet away I figured it was time to start back padddling.
