Common Loon - Full Frame - No Crop

There were 3 loons on the lake yesterday. This one swam right up to the raft. Got this shot just before it got to close to focus on. Had to cut my day short as I got a hole in the seam of the rafts main chamber. Lucky for me it was a fairly slow leak and I was only about 100 yards from shore. Still since the oar locks are located on the main chamber the rowing got a little dicey as it deflated. I have one spare raft left. As the weather was pretty bad today (rainy/windy), I went looking for a couple more rafts. Visited 6 stores and came away empty. I guess I'll have to buy on line. Seems like that was how I got my last 4.
