My FIRST loon opportunity!
I was so excited, I could hardly find him in my lens on the lake to shoot the picture.
Loons are usually VERY shy.
I was SURE I wasn't going to capture him.
And I look closer.
They just swam around and around and fished.
There was a boat across the lake pulling someone on a tow rope and a tube.
They seemed more concerned about watching them.
This one began flapping his wings at the sound of the boat across the lake:
They swam over to our side of the lake, much to my delight!
Here they are right next to a dock to the right of the boat landing where we were standing:
Dipping in for a fish snack:
What? You didn't bring me any fish?:
Even my backside is pretty. See?:
My side profile is pretty awesome, too:
Wow, his markings were SPECTACULAR~!!
