Common Loon
Photographer: Peter Matkovich
Location: Buck Lake, BC
Story: 
I Caught this small fish while fly fishing in my pontoon boat, earlier I had noticed a pair of loons caring for their chick across the lake so I figured they could do with a meal. I rowed across and held the fish out to them. I assume it was the male who came to meet me. My experience with loons is that they are quick take a meal. However this one didn't mind taking his dinner close to me and posing for a few shots to express his gratitude.
