What a thrill it was to find a common loon peacefully swimming in Alaska’s Prince William Sound’s icy waters. It was quite unimpressed with our skiff and allowed us to follow it on its voyage. So, there was ample time to wait for a good clear shot despite the movement of our tiny boat.

    Great photo, nice processing description. I really appreciate that. A fav for me. I love these birds. Our Seeley and Placid Lakes in western Montana is known for its loons.
