Laughing Loon

Today we have a photo, taken this afternoon while canoeing on Police Outpost Lake.  Right  on our border with the US, and a few miles east of Waterton Parks, this beautiful small lake once was the site of a NWMPolice post, established  in about 1880 to keep an eye on illegal whiskey trade.  We spent a peaceful afternoon watching and photographing loons, bald eagles, pelicans, grebes and more!  This gorgeous loon was really ticked off with us, and though he looks like he’s laughing, he was scolding us in that hauntingly beautiful and echo-y voice.
