Loon on Elk Lake
Photographer: Gary Paige
Location: Elk Lake, the Adirondacks, NY
Elk Lake is an iconic Adirondack ecology. My wife and I enjoy photography from a canoe for its quiet unimposing approach. This loon is posturing as we closed distance but soon resorted to hunting when we shut down any motion.
