Solitude, Common Loon

"Solitude, Common Loon" Acrylic on canvas, Artist Teresa Stieben BFA

A small lake will only contain one mating pair of loons, so its really important not to disturb them on the nest or while they have young ones to care for as they could abandon the nest. This one was on a small prairie pothole lake with its mate. We had stopped off the roadside to photograph water lilies when we spotted a pair out on the water; only one was close enough for the reach of my camera.
