Dance of an Icon
I love loons, but loons don't always love me. This beautiful dance was really a warning directed at me. The loons on this particular lake gather in large numbers, 8 in this group. I was kayaking and stopped at a safe distance trying not to intimidate them. They then approached me and started this display, letting out warning calls. I didn't move, aside from taking photos, and eventually they got bored, realizing I wasn't a threat, and moved on.
