  1. Excellent series! Nr 5 is my favourite. Landing on the big rock seems like a miniature helicopter! Very well done.

  2. Exquisite details!!!

  3. A fine series with such a successful capture of the action. I too felt the creature looked helicopter like in one of the shots. You asked about the depth of Lake Coeur d’Alene – it is 220 feet at the deepest.

    • Thanks,
      This was an exercise in patience! Had i used my Nikkormat it would have taken 30 rolls of film…
      These creatures are soooo incredibly fast! If they weren’t territorial, and landing on the same spots I never could have managed it. My method was to lay down in the river, focus and shoot like mad in order to get a few usable images. One of the great benefits of Digital!
      Thanks again ya’ll for the nice comments, they are truly appreciated! 😀

  4. agree with pernilla, nr 5 is awesome as the little guy looks directly in the camera, almost like a pixar movie :)))

  5. the dof on the top one is really nice. gives an extra kick.

  6. Wow, those are some crazy shots you got, very nice!

  7. Really nice wildlife series. Well done.
