It was early morning on Fourth Lake at Kenmore Cottages in the Adirondacks. I was waiting on the chilly dock over the water of the lake for the sunrise and out of the mist I saw a small figure paddling towards me. At first I thought it was a duck, but as it came closer and closer I saw it grow in size to an immature Loon. He must of been lonely and wanted company because he swam right up near me and started preening for 20 minutes. I didn’t have a long lens, only the wide angle on the camera.
He stretched his wings and turned over exposing his white belly and preened and flapped several times. He just wanted some company.
