In Algonquin Park this year, there were a family of loons on Canisbay Lake. We paddled in close to observe them and then went back to shore. Of course, I had forgotten to bring my camera with me for that trip. Shortly after we landed, I couldn’t let the situation be – so I grabbed my camera bag and took the canoe out – solo. What followed was a fun game of cat-and-mouse (or loony-and-loon) as I followed them around to get some better photos. I managed to get ridiculously close, and outside of this display, there didn’t seem to be any ill feelings. I think they were as curious as I was!
