2 posts in one day! This shot was taken a while back with most of the other loon shots. Again, not technically, or even compositionally perfect for a birding shot; however, I don’t really care.

I took this shot on a beautiful day spent at the cottage. The sun was setting and the light was fading to the point of darkness. We caught up with this guy in the boat and I managed to get low and snap a couple of really close shots. I’m not gonna lie, the loon was trying to get away from the boat. As you can see it is looking over it’s shoulder at me and saying “Eff Off”.
