While out fishing today...this Common Loon and it's mate swam by us and stayed close. They were also fishing. There so beautiful...this is the first time I have ever been so close to one and been able to get any photos. Along with the loons...there was a Snapping Turtle, Northern Brown Snake at least 4 feet long. Many birds and insects, plus we did good fishing. This was a day to remember...being able to spend the day with my best friend Charlie was special.
