Common Loon

I was shooting some swallows in flight yesterday when a Common Loon photobombed us! Okay, maaaybe it’s the other way around, but what a warm welcome this dude received from about a hundred hungry birds. They had him completely surrounded at one point and he didn’t seem to mind at all. I saw a loon fly over two months ago, but this is the first one I’ve actually seen floating in the bog. Oh, and also, this is my #151 Celery Bog bird species photographed!
