    John Muir's favorite animal.

    It is astonishing some of the places where I've seen them in winter. They don't migrate, but stay on their home streams. I've seen them in streams in the winter in the Tetons where the banks of little mountain brooks will be 8 feet high with snow and there they are dippin' and divin' in water that would probably be ice, if it weren't moving.

    Great photos, and I can relate to quite a few comments; the dipper is a wonderful critter to watch whilst I'm cold, dazing, and not hooked up to my intended species...
