I saw somthing that caught my eye while I was walking in the marsh trail. I looked down and it looks to be a northern green frog but blue. there are no adjustments made to this photo only cropped. But the crazy thing is that I asked some reptile enthusiast and he told me that it was a color pigmitaion that makes most of him blue and that is extremely rare . And after reading an article about another person's encounter with this a biologist said it's 1 and a million so I was really happy to of photographed and encountered this

Throughout our winter visit to Waterton Lakes National Park, two American Dipper were present along Red Rock Creek where it crosses Highway 5. There was convenient parking at the Pass Creek Winter Campground, so we pulled over and I sat by the water and waited for the dippers to approach. When one finally did, the sun had set below the mountains to the south - so lighting was not optimal. Setting the exposure for a dark bird against a bright background was tricky.

Further complicating the situation, a couple fellows in a truck arrived and flew a drone out right over my head, agitating the bird. While I try not to be a petty person, I did derive some satisfaction from the abrupt cessation of the drone's whine, followed by a thud and much swearing. The operators trashed the drone by flying it into a tree.

A few of these birds have stopped down with the Snow Buntings to enjoy the wonderful mass of grass seeds

The food habits of the Lapland longspur are quite simple: mostly seeds in winter and arthropods in the summer, when they are in activity.[5]

During the winter, the longspur feeds on seeds. They pick them on the ground, rarely feeding directly on plants. They will forage around the same area for a period varying between a few minutes and an hour, then fly away looking for a new foraging area. Their seed diet is composed mainly of seeds from grass, foxtail, cultivated millet, crabgrass and wheat.[5] During the breeding season, the birds migrate to the north, where their diet switches to arthropods. Nestlings are only fed arthropods, which also constitute the diet of the parents at that time of the year (June to July). The birds often catch insects in mid-air, but do forage through vegetation when climatic conditions prevent the insects from flying.[6] Longspurs can consume between 3000 and 10,000 prey items (insects or seeds) per day, depending on their energy needs.Wikipedia
