Although, it seems we've been focused on the carnivores. How about a vegan?

Would this be take-away?

A killdeer on a cold spring morning - ice crystals on his back feathers

You think he (or she) is standing on one leg because of the cold?

Don't know for sure. My guess is its more about resting than the cold. I'm not sure how much the birds feel the cold in their legs. They're really nothing more than bone, skin, and tendon.

Fresh Cutthroat Trout

Take last April in Moose Wyoming during a light snow fall.

That looks more like a brook trout than a cut, with the white/black on the leading edges of the fins. I'm sure the heron didn't care!

Was that the beaver pond on Moose-Wilson?
That's where I got this guy, which might have even been the same bird.

Jackson Bill,  Yes.  Moose-Wilson Rd to the left of the beaver pond a bit.  Might be the same guy.  Drove by there 3-4 days ago and still covered in snow and about a 4 foot snow bank along the road.  One of my go to places for late day places to shoot.  Also, lots of Black Bears in the area.  About a mile south/west down is where i got the Cinnamon Black Bear shot last fall.
Might be a Brook.  Maybe this cropped pic (few frames before) will help you.

Thanks,
Yes, I'm definitely leaning towards a Brook and fairly good-sized at that. I'll have to get out there this summer and see if I can find one with my flyrod.

From your other photos we've been hanging around the same places!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Plans For NAB 2014 Next Month [CR1]

...

If there is any camera in the Canon lineup that desperately needs an update it's the 7D. The 70D brings more features to the table at a lower price... that has to be annihilating the sales! If they put 4K video on it, NAB would be a great place to announce it.

I completely agree that the 7D needs an update and that the 70D is competing well in the 7D market, having seen amateur wildlife shooters I know opt for the 70 D. I'd be *really* disappointed if the addition of 4K video is the only upgdate though. I just don't see video as one of the primary functions of the 7D and, personally, could not care less about 4K video.

Snake; It's what's for Breakfast!  ;D

and from the shape of the snake, it looks like he had eaten something fairly recently - nature's cycle, huh?

Breakfast  600mm

Nice one!
I have a similar shot of a white weasel with something as large as he/she is in his mouth but not nearly as sharp.
