It’s a Looney Tunes Day and I am Blissfully Happy

The lake was like a mirror so I decided to take my husbands Pelican that’s his flat bottom boat with an electric motor (we use it because it is blissfully quiet and there is no nasty oil and gas being dumped into the lake) and stroll to the other side of the lake to see if I could spot the loons nest. I took a circuitous route to the nest on the other side when I got to the other shore I slowly, quietly, trolled along the side. Then there she was sitting on her nest I was not even 20’ away. Oddly she did not seem to mind my presence so I snapped a few pictures and left. Here is a rare picture of a loon nesting. I plan to paint this one.
