Galway Lake Loon

One of my photographic goals or "missions" has been to get a shot of a Loon on Galway Lake in Saratoga County. I am moderately pleased with this shot considering it was taken with a 30 year old manual focus lens and was shot hand held from a row boat.

Loons are amazing birds. From the speed they can swim under water, to their clumsiness in taking off in flight. It is a treat to be able to watch them and especially listen to them.

One other thing that I have learned from today's excursion is that I need a lens with a longer reach!
