Jeff,
My preference is the one you posted the link to on the NNY list-serve. I think that's the one now on your home page. That shot is nothing short of fabulous, a real heart melter. You captured the essence of that moment.

I would love to take some loon photos. I live in Syracuse, and am willing to take a day trip to get some photos. Does anyone know of an area (not way up north in the ADKs) where it is almost guaranteed to be loons right now? I know there are no 100% guarantees, but if I make a long trip, I would like to see some loons!

To all of you "Loonies:
"If you look under wildlife, then "breeding loons" you can see some wonder pics of loons.

this is not to say that the pics that are posted here are not Awesome(!), I just thought I would direct you all to some more. I love seeing them!

Great pics...loons are great!!

Lets try to remember to give the breeding loons,chicks, and nesting areas a wide berth ! It doesn't take much to disturb the natural patterns and upset the natural balance and all of that.
thanks!

This was taken on Follensby Clear pond late last September. I'm gonna learn how to take multiple shots with one shutter push this year and hopefully up the number of 'keepers' I get. Can't wait till ice out

Taken in front of my house. I am looking forward to finding wintering loons next week. I love to search for them while paddling the Gulf of Mexico and so far I have not been disappointed. This one had already started transitoning to winter plumage.

Our loons seem to be very large at home. In the winter their commute is quite short to the sea. Less than an hour. Ergo couch potatoes.

for anyone I offend on the Forum,I am sorry.I am hoping to be a loon in the next life
Where no one will hear words,just serene cries.
A poem for anyone:

''The Hero''
He is one who listens without criticism,
and kindles a bright light in the dark streets of life.
He writes poems ,as intense as the sun,
and feels ''lightness of being''all his days.''
A Hero is never forgotten. Looncry
