[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A loon on Salmon Lake, which is situated on the Douglas Lake Ranch (the largest operating cattle ranch in Canada, I believe).
The ranch, although a little removed from the main routes, is still quite accessible and with its unique rolling grasslands is an appealing place, to me at least.

Hello Patrick
I don't think I have seen a Loon before...
It is a little soft/unsharp and I would have liked to see more space in front of the bird "for it to move into", but tt has attractive black/blue and white patterns. Quite eye-catching
TFS / thanks for sharing
