It was early morning on Fourth Lake at Kenmore Cottages in the Adirondacks. I was waiting on the chilly dock over the water of the lake for the sunrise and out of the mist I saw a small figure paddling towards me. At first I thought it was a duck, but as it came closer and closer I saw it grow in size to an immature Loon. He must of been lonely and wanted company because he swam right up near me and started preening for 20 minutes. I didn’t have a long lens, only the wide angle on the camera.
