Photo Challenges


This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Joy prompt.

I was photographing ripples on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise when this Common Loon swam into the section with the most interesting ripples. I wasn’t overjoyed until the bird surfaced and did a nice wing stretch after a dive.

I don’t know if the stretch was to help the bird swallow a fish it had caught while underwater or if it’s simply straightening ruffled feathers but it certainly looks joyful.
