Now that the sun had risen past the color stage, it was time to move on to Emerald Lake our final destination. This shot is the west side of Dream Lake. While setting up and taking ths shot I noticed a small bird popped out from under the water, walked around a bit on the ice, and then dove back under. I have no idea what kind of bird it was, but I have never seen or heard of anything like that before. Unfortunately, I was not quite ready to capture him and he was to shy or busy to sit still long enough.
