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's a picture of Bullwinkle taken from the campsite on the western side of Vernon Lake in 1997. He was eating grass in the shallow water next to our camp.

I don't care about a baracuda either. I never saw one in the BWCA. Isn't what this forum is for ? Izzy
05/04/2007 06:35PM
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. :(
05/04/2007 07:10PM
That photo is a classic, LT!
Portage Monkey  
05/04/2007 07:18PM
Barley, That is probably the grosest...and at the same time Coolest photo I have ever seen. Very Alien meets Predator. Nice composition too.
05/04/2007 07:28PM

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.
05/04/2007 07:37PM
Just a question.... where do you guys see this monster in my picture? EDIT Is this it I went back and cropped the photo.
Portage Monkey  
05/04/2007 07:49PM
Sorry L.T., but I think a better quetion is where do you see a loon?
05/05/2007 08:03AM

This mink stole my walleye dinner while I waited out a short rain storm in my tent

Wildlife photos have never been my strong suit. Here's Mr Beaver eating on Crab Lake, September 2006.

05/05/2007 10:28AM

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...

Otter on Fourtown...

Female Loon on the nest on Disappointment, male was nearby keeping us away!

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!

:-) :-) :-)
05/07/2007 02:13PM
Yhea I realized the other day that I have a better photo I could have entered. D@&^ It. I'll share it but I guess it can't count. Oh well.

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.
05/12/2007 10:04AM

One loon's wild life on Red Rock Lake--smoke and a few flames from the 2005 Alpine Lake fire are in the background.

05/21/2007 09:42PM
I am not an expert, but I think that is a mink or an ermin. Not an otter.

Peace out

Loon on the shore of Wind Bay (Basswood Lake).

Maybe its a mink, I had a couple people look at it, muskrat, mink, otter are all things people have said. My dad said it was probably an otter, anyway here are some more pics of its backside, and some happy turtles we saw on the same trip

Taken on back bay of Basswood Lake. After all the clouds on Memorial Day weekend, you can guess how much we appreciated this sunset.
05/29/2007 03:19PM

What kind of camera were you using? The color in those photos is outstanding!

Amazing picture.

I wept like a wee school girl that day.

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.
