A Common Loon In Late-April
This shot of a Common Loon (Great Northern Loon) was snapped on April 22nd 2018 around 8 AM, shortly after this loon migrated back for breeding season. Shot on a Sony DSC-H400, free hand, the photo has not been touched up or had any filters applied or lighting adjusted, just cropped to show the loon in more detail. The loon is lit by the morning sun, no flash used, and is resting on the surface of Lake Champlain after recently returning from what appeared to be an unsuccessful dive. Upon a successful dive, loons can typically be seen eating their catch, this photo was taken seconds after the loon returned to the surface without a fish, just after the ripples from its dive dissipated and it began to resume swimming.
