I did a bit of fishing this morning...

My alarm went off at 4 am.

70 miles to the cabin to get the boat and then 5 miles to the lake.

In two hours 10 Bass and 4 northern pike.

That was all good and well, but I was wondering about the loon on the nest.

Was she (or he) still sitting on the eggs?

I was up to the cabin to do some maint.  but I took time to go see.

There she was (HE), sitting quietly.  I approached slowly and stopped at ab0out 75 feet.

I moved slowly as not to frighten her.

It had rained just a little a few minutes before...

A blown up photo shows the rain drops on her (his) head.
