A pair of loons swimming on Lake of the Woods in Northwest Ontario. Male and Female loons look almost alike with the same distinctive black and white markings. The female is slightly smaller than the male.

    Beautiful. Love how the heads are pointing.

  • They are really interesting ducks and they dive if one gets too close and stay under water for quite awhile.
