If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Loon and chicks
While canoeing in Wisconsin this past week the loons and their chicks allowed me to get up fairly close for pictures. It was especially endearing to see the little chicks riding on the parent's back.
Loons are great divers and eat mainly minnows and also amphibians, crustaceans and aquatic fauna. They prefer clean water lakes, since they visually locate their prey.
