My godparents have a cottage on a lake in Michigan that is about the farthest south loon will take up residence. They are very proud of the loon couple that lives there every summer. This photo is from our visit there in July 2007. Matt and I took their canoe out and found ourselves swimming along the same tributary (ha ha. I don't know what you call the little fingers that jut off of the lake so I figure tributary will give you the general idea.) as this loon. And, even more exciting, I was able to get some pretty decent closeups. Incidentally, I've been watching a nature program where they are using cameras parked half a mile away to get super closeups. Now how cool would that be!
