Loonar Eclipse

Loonar Eclipse, a photo by UpstateNYPhototaker on Flickr.
I have been slow in posting lately (and slow in making photos). I have numerous Galway Lake Sunset photos, some I have posted and some I have not but this is my favorite so far. While it looks like a normal sunset photo, I waited patiently for that loon to enter the scene in just the right position.

This particular Loon was one of the least skittish that I have seen. It would appear that the loons are nesting on Galway Lake in Saratoga County. I have been told by people who know a lot more than me that this is pretty far south for loons to be nesting. Also, while Galway Lake is not small (550 acres), it is heavily populated with camps and houses. There are a few good sized areas that don't have structures and I would have to assume that this is where they would be nesting.

I would really appreciate it if anyone had more information about loon nesting behavior.
