Resting Cutthroat Trout
Photographer: Thomas J Astle
Location: Beartooth Mountains, Montana
I was backpacking on the Beartooth Plateau, and doing some fishing. These cutthroats weren't feeding -- they were resting, post-spawning. You could actually reach down and touch them, so I stopped fishing and just took pictures. I liked the dappled effect of the wind on the water.
