I spent 6 days photographing these guys and loved every minute of it.

Hey Scott,

That is rather sweet. Is that a crayfish it is eating?

That is so amazing Scott! What a great shot. I love Loons. I hear them a lot on the ponds and lakes up here, but rarely see them.

Beautiful shot, those dark colors can be hard to capture.

Great shot, the loons you've been shooting are just stunning. Amazing color/patterns.

I shot this using my Nikon D300, Nikon AF-S 200-400mm f/4 VR + 1.4x teleconverter. I prefer to shoot with my full frame D700, but for this shot I needed the extra reach I get with my cropped sensor D300.
