Find the Brookie in the Picture

Yesderday I uploaded data from our seven temperature data loggers. Two of the loggers are located under undercut banks in the small tributaries leading into the brook. In both places I saw lots of fingerlings. There is a 3 or 4 inch fingerling peaking out from under a tree branch in the first photo. Water depth is only 3 inches. Can you spot it? The second photo shows the undercut bank where I saw about five fingerlings.  The water temperature was 13 C (55 F) while the main brook temperature was 2 degrees warmer.
