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.
