We talk of how the Hummingbird can even fly upside down; but how many knew
the Dipper can forage upside down? I for one did not, until I reviewed some
digiscoped frames I shot on the Breitenbush River near Detroit Sept. 27th.
I cropped and pasted these five frames to show it launching into a
summersault from atop a rock to forage upside down at the base, while
clinging to the rock.

Another frame shows it standing with eye placed perfectly below the
water-line to see its targets.
