I took this picture from a canoe on Green Lake, which is located in Ellsworth, Maine, about 45 minutes North of Acadia National Park. I followed this loon across the lake to a small island where her nest was located. Upon arriving at her nest, she rolled the two eggs, and then sat on them. I was amazed at how still she sat as I took her picture. In the days that followed, whenever I approached the nest, she quickly slid into the water and swam away.
