Uncertain of ID, but I think this is a freshwater sculpin. The slimy sculpin (C. cognatus) is one option. The coastrange sculpin (Cottus aleuticus) is another.

Seen and photographed only momentarily, and the only skimmer observed on the entire 2.5 week trip (contrasted to a trip in August two years ago when black meadowhawks were abundant and seen at multiple sites.

Red spot on segment 7 does not reach the end of the segment (which distinguishes L. hudsonica from the Boreal Whiteface L. borealis).

Pushing the limits of identification, this silhouette of a soaring bird was one of two that were flying and circling at top of ridge, high above lakes. My first thought was that two ravens were playing, but the shape didn't seem right for ravens.

True to its name of Camp Robber, this bird watched where we sat and walked and as we left, successfully found our dropped food scraps. Smart.
