Targeting a Specific Loon  

Loons are fairly easy to photograph. They're easy to find, they're big, and they come close to jetties. But you're never targeting individual Commons and Red-throateds. You take the ones  that come along. Then enter one  Pacific Loon. From what transpired the day of its finding, I thought it was going to be the easiest bird ever to photograph. Not so fast on the days I was there. There was changing of preferred locations, distance, piers in the way, and so on. But about 9 or 10 hours later, on the second day of trying, persistence paid off.
