Puzzle: “Common Loons” Artist: Michael Sieve Company: Cobble Hill Pieces: 1000 Time to Complete: 7 hours and 55 mins . . . . . . #jigsawpuzzles #cobblehill #hobbies #commonloons #art
From my time of being a very young man, which carries on still. I have two things that envision the Northwoods to me. One is the Muskie which I fished for many years, caught and released plenty. The other is the loon! More than any other bird, including the Eagle, its haunting call. Seeing them silently gliding across the lake lends to the mystique of the Northwoods. OnEarth day please keep in mind the silent guardians of our wilds! #capturededication #lancelemke  #imagesbylemke #wildlifeonearth #wildlifephotography #animalelite #animal_captures #wildlifelovers #wildlifephoto #loon #commonloons #commonloon Bird #your_best _birds #birds  #animal_sultans #animals_captures #natgeowild #animal_fanatics #wildlifeplanet #earthfocus #wildlifeaddicts #animals_in_world #wildlifeperfection #natgeowildlife #natgeo #splendid_animals #natgeohub #natgeopl #your_best_birds #earthday
Keeping things neat. #commonloons #nhlakes #nikond500
Another loon photo to close the day. As long as you respect the animals' distance, you can capture some neat moments. Be aware of your surroundings and don't pose a threat. Watch their mannerisms to ensure they're not stressed then you can snap away. #loons #commonloons #canadianbird #canadanature #wildlifephotography #getoutthere #naturebathing #sonyalpha #sonya9 #sony100400gm #silentshooting
I was on a buddy's boat this morning looking for eagles and osprey. I did see an osprey, but nothing exciting from it. But as we sat quietly near an island, we had a loon within 50 yds just patiently feeding away while we drifted. It was a perfect 'glass water' kind of day so it was perfect for hanging out and snapping photos of this beauty - the classic Canadian summer bird :) #loons #commonloons #canadianbird #canadanature #wildlifephotography #getoutthere #naturebathing #sonyalpha #sonya9 #sony100400gm #silentshooting
Simply spectacular afternoon paddling Caspian Lake in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, highlighted by this pair of loons and their three young. Such a gift to have a few moments with such exquisite creatures. . . #caspianlake #caspianlakevt #greensborovt #greensborovermont #kayakvt #kayakvermont #kayakingvt #kayakingvermont #commonloons #commonloon #loon #loons #kayakingwithloons #northeastkingdom #northeastkingdomvt
I thought it was neat to see the both breeding and juvenile plumage of the Common Loon, side by side. #birdwatching #birding #commonloons #plumage #loon #ornithology #seneynationalwildliferefuge #seneymichigan #wildlifemonitoring #birdphotography
Check out this amazing interaction I captured with the loons on our lake. I knew something was brewing so I started filming with a pre-production Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera - through the viewfinder (game-changer) and with an easy switch. When you are photographing sometimes you wish you were filming, when you are filming sometimes you wish you were shooting stills. This time I am glad I was filming because I would have never anticipated this loon jumping out of the water like a penguin. Filmed at an impressive 120fps. Do you think they were the females fighting for a male? Maybe fighting over a fish? #Z7 #mirrorless #nikonambassadors #nikonnofilter #commonloons #loons #birds #lake #sharbotlake #ontario #canada #interaction #nature #amazing #beautiful #loonfight #mirrorlessreinvented #capturetomorrow
The Call of The Mighty Loon... Have a listen...https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Common _Loon/sounds My newest Loon painting. 16” x 12”. Oil on canvas. #loons #lakeMinnetonka #minnesota #commonloons #farnorth #mlscrimgeour #maryscrimgeour #birds #lakebirds #birdpaintings #contemporaryart
It looks like the fish is jumping right into the mouth of the loon.  Loved shooting with the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera with the 500mm PF Nikkor lens.  A game changer in my opinion.  #z7 #mirrorless #nikon #nikonambassador #capturetomorrow #loons #commonloons #chick #sharbotlake #ontario #canada #wildlife #nature #beautiful #birds #mirrorlessreinvented #500mmPF

This was the night @erinmarchesseault called a “Sham-Wow” “Shamu” after a nice usher came to dry our seats off after a 2 hour delay. Missing this gal a lil extra #commonloons
One possible reason for the red eyes of the loon is that the color helps them to see underwater, filtering out blue and green light. It is also thought that the brilliant red color helps them to attract other loons. Since the summer coincides with their mating season. #commonloons #nhloons #audubonsociety #nikonD500 #nikonnofilter #AudubonTakeover
Is a group of Loons called an asylum? Not a great picture, but I was so happy to get eleven Loons in one picture! #commonloons #mnstatebird #loonsofinstagram #loonconservation #mnwildlife #mnlakelife #mnsummer #mncabinlife #loveloons #mnexposure #exploreminnesota #upnorth #loonasylum #elevenloons
Seek and ye shall find .. wandered over to Joe's Pond in West Danville and were rewarded with a visit with a pair of loons, including this one who surfaced close to my starboard, and then later a view from afar of a mother and young one .. . . #loon #loons #commonloon #commonloons #joespondvt #joespond #westdanvillevt #birdwatchinginakayak #birdwatching #kayakingwithloons
Missing the haunting sound of the #commonloons every morning... But it was serendipitous to get a request for one as a “ease back into work” order this week!!! . . . #rockcrestglass #stainedglass #adirondacks #loon #loons #commonloon #callofthewild #lakegeorge #adk #notreadytogobacktowork #customart #originaldesign #handmade #❤️
"Early Morning Stretch" by Diane Weiler "I headed west from Ontario to photograph the birds in this area of BC. I was blessed with many magical moments with red necked grebes, horned grebes, bonapart gulls, ruddy ducks, virginia rails, great grey owls and more. Many with their young. But this morning, during the golden hour, a common loon and her chick swam into the beautiful light. The chick had been asleep on mom's back, but woke and proceeded to have an early morning stretch, much to my delight!" #wildlifephotooftheday #dailywildlifephoto #photooftheday #naturalhabitatadventures #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #wildlifephoto #instagood #wildlifephotographer #wildlife #naturephotographer #commonloon #loon #loons #britishcolumbia #commonloons

2 Common Loons came flying into this pond and landed about 10 ft away and started calling for their chicks.
A Momma w/her two day old chics. My wife and I had a great trip up to see this new family.
SLOW DOWN!!! This loon chick was in a boat collison on a reservoir in southern N.H. The collision left him with a broken right leg and some gashes on his head. It is your right to enjoy the lake as a boater, but it is also your duty to be vigilant and slow down when loons are in the vacinity. Chicks can be especially vulnerable! He will be well taken care of at Wings of the Dawn! Also please keep away from active loon nests and do not use lead fishing tackle! #loons #commonloons #vet #veterinarymedicine #wildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #wingsofthedawn #conservation #wildliferehabvolunteer #lakelife #boatlife #newhampshire #summer #newhampshirelife #waterskiing #jetski #personalwatercraft #nature #wildlifephotography

Sometimes when you like an animal so much you take several thousand pictures of it, one of those pictures happens to catch the sunset reflecting off the feathers in a way you’ve never noticed with your naked eye & later you see the picture on your computer screen & it instantly becomes your new favorite picture you’ve ever taken & you just know that you need a huge print on your wall, probably on metal or glass or something that will really bring out the vibrance. The good news for you is that this can be yours too from alaskankayak.com ➡️ store ➡️ wildlife encounters. There are other pictures there if loons aren’t your thing. But loons are my thing, so I’m ordering this one
This family of Loons hung out with us all week. #wisconsinsummer #wisconsinloons #wisconsinwildlife #wisconsinvacation #commonloons

“What lies in front of you and what lies behind you, pales in comparison to what lies inside you.” -RWE. Sometimes you need a really freaking great friend to realize just how awesome you are; that our past and futures do not necessarily define us. And what a blessing it is to have people in our lives like this. #commonloons #swipeleftforbae
They have hatched!!!! Admittedly poor quality photo, but it was so fun to see the 2 loon chicks on momma’s back. #feelingfortunate #commonloons #uncommon #loonchicks #ridinginstyle #okanogancounty
Common Loons (Gavia immer) in breeding plumage. Fun fact: Loons are great swimmers, but they are also known for moving fast in the air. Migrating loons have been clocked flying at speeds more than 112 kph (70 mph). 2018-06-07 #commonloon #commonloons #loons #Gaviaimmer #prairiebirds #manitobabirds #exploremb #manitobawildlife #wetlands #ridingnp #ridingmountainnationalpark #ridingmountain #rmnp #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeseekers #birdwatching #birdland #birdlife #birdsofinstagram #birding #birder #birdnerd #birdfacts #funfacts #nikonp900 #p900
I can never get tired of spending time with and photographing loons on the lake.  Love hearing their haunting call too.  #commonloons #loons #lake #cottagecountry #sharbotlake #ontario #canada #canadianwildlife #bird #wildlife #nature #earth #raw #beauty #beautiful #chicks #family #peaceful #amazing #nikon

CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS.. Time for some chemistry! So, pick a shirt and come along! There are so many things to learn.. things you might didn't even know they existed! This picture is a good place to start and Lazlo will be glad to share his knowledge with you! XD Source of inspiration for this drawing was an episode from a greek series 'The Generation of 592 Euro" where two male friends want to go to a carnival party dressed like a chemical compound of Gallium and Yttrium aka GAY xD And of course everyone thought they were gay in real or they were pretending to be a gay couple.. It was probably my favorite episode of the series, haha! XD Also, I'm so sorry about the way I drew Lumpus here xD He could just have a normal face but no! I wanted to keep the original shape of him as much as possible. xP For more Camp Lazlo fanart, check out my DeviantArt here! : https://zim-bringerofdoom.deviantart.com/ #camplazlo #lazed #lazloxedward #lazlo #Edward #Raj #clam #scoutmasterlumpus #slinkman #samsonclogmeyer #daveandpingpong #chipandskip #patsysmiles #gay #yaoi #love #commanderzim #fanart #2018 #drawing #art #commonloons #dungbeetletwins #deviantart #humanform #alternateuniverse #campers #jellybeans #pintobeans #favabeans

We heard the call of the loons this weekend on the lake!!! What a beautiful sound. I can't wait to get into my kayak and photograph them again this year! Hopefully we have a nest near us again.
