Buckhorn Lake, Buckhorn, Ontario.
Patience, trust & a special energy with nature are some of the elements needed to capture intimate moments like this. I photographed this common loon during a very special encounter on Buckhorn Lake, Ontario, Canada. I have spent countless hours with this particular loon family each summer for a number of years (Loons return to the same lake, more specifically the same bay. . year after year) This particular loon has a small chip out of it's beak and makes it very easy for me to identify. Spending a lot of time around them, letting them dictate the terms and come to you goes a long way in earning trust. The kind of trust needed to be up close and personal for moments such as this.
