Common Loon

Common Loon
My very favorite kind of bird. More here, including great sound files. Large version here.

WOW, great capture of the water -- I mean the bird's cool too but the water is spectacular! Great paterning.

What Donna said--the bird is pretty, but the water is also lovely.

This is so beautiful. I don't know what else to say -- this is just SO beautiful. The texture of the water is perfect. The bird rocks.

I think if you look at the larger version the bird pops out better. But Loons are colored and lined to blend in with water and waves, and that's something I think the high-contrast water (and this static shot of it) reveals. I like the way the Loon's wake ruffles the lines. It gives the composition an interesting dynamism.

It's one of my favorite shots ever.
